    TROOPER JOHN JOSEPH BANNAN.
    Sincere regret was expressed in Berwick and Beaconsfield when the sad news was received that Trooper John J. Bannan, late of Berwick, of the 8th Light Horse Regiment, had died of malaria fever in hospital at Damascus, in Palestine, on 16th October. Trooper Bannan had been in action for three years and five months, and leaves a wife and two young children to mourn their loss. The deceased soldier, who was 29 years of age, was the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Denis Bannan, of Kerang, old and highly respected residents of that district, with whom the deepest sympathy is felt, as two other sons, Frank and Willie, were killed in action in France in August, 1916. May their souls rest in peace.
