A memorial service was conducted in the Anglican Church 
for the late Private John Pake, so recently killed in action. 
A large large number of the deceased's relatives and friends were in attendance...

The late John Pake was a young man of exemplary habits 
and will be mourned by a great many, and especially in 
this community, where he was reared and always lived.
