The Don Dorrigo Gazette and Guy Fawkes Advocate  :issue Saturday 7 October

PTE. H. CARR-BOYD.

Pte. H. Carr-Boyd, writes to the proprietor of this paper from France, under date August 14th as follows: — " A line to let you know that my great friend Donald Ross, well-known in Dorrigo, for the past nine years, met his death on the morning of the 20th July. It was awful luck for poor Donald. He happened to be standing up in the supports at the time, when a high explosive shell burst a few feet in front of him. A piece hit him on top of the head, death being instantaneous. No doubt the news of his death came as a big shock to his many friends on the Dorrigo, especially about Deer Vale and Ebor, where he was so well known, and his, worth as a resident appreciated. France is a beautiful country well worth fighting for
