Mott of Waterford received word last week of the death of her son,
Flight Lt. J. E. Mott, who went overseas as a staff sergeant with
the medical corps in the early days of the war.
With that unit he went
thru the fighting at Ypres, being in charge of a dressing station
500 yards from the enemy's lines.
Later he received a second
lieutenant's commission in the Royal Irish Fusiliers, and went
thru the Somme fighting with that regiment.
Later he was transferrerd
to the flying corps, and only a few weeks ago was decorated for
bravery in taking photographs of the enemy's lines.
During his air service he
was shot down six times without sustaining serious injuries.
No details have been
received as to the manner in which he met his death.
Mrs. Mott has the sincere
sympathy of her many Waterford friends.
