I stayed at a hotel a couple of hundred yards from the memorial, so was able to get photos in the afternoon, one at night, and some more early the next morning.

"There is no doubt," said Major Stephens, in answer to a question of the "Mail" representative, "that Hull has been fortunate. So far as my information goes, Only one Hull man has been killed in action. That was at the beginning of the war, and he had no relatives; but one man, Private Gadie, was drowned at the Riet River, and another, Private Donoghue, died in the Fever Hospital."

Official information has been received that P.C. Rangemore, of the Hull Police Force, has died from fever in South Africa. The deceased, who leaves a widow and three children, was one of the first detachment of Hull policemen called upon to re-join their regiments in October last. He belonged to the 1st Dragoon Guards. Much sympathy is felt by the members of the Force. The deceased acted as spokesman for his brother reservists at the dinner given by the Police at the Imperial Hotel on the eve of their departure for the front.

DEATH OF A HULL SOLDIER.

PROPOSED MEMORIAL AT ST. AUGUSTINE'S.
Mr D. W. Moore, Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders, died of enteric fever at Eerstifabrichen, 15 miles beyond Pretoria, on Sunday, August 12th. Mr Moore was the son of the parish clerk of St. Augustine's Church, who was himself formerly sergeant in the same regiment. The son was for some tie cross-bearer and altar server at the church, and was also a private in the Hull Rifle Corps. On leaving Hull for a situation in Glasgow he transferred himself to the Dumbarton Volunteers and volunteered for the front.
He was much respected and beloved by the Vicar and congregation at St. Augustine's, and on Sunday touching references were made in the sermons. In the morning, in addition to special hymns, Chopin's "Funeral March" was played by Mr W. E. Abraham, organist of St Alban's, Birmingham, who was home for holidays. In the evening the anthem was Mendelssohn's pathetic solo, "O rest in the Lord," touchingly rendered by Mr H. Wolfenden, and followed by the quartette "Cast thy burden upon the Lord." It is probable that some memorial of Mr Moore will be put up in the church, and the Vicar will be glad to hear from old comrades and friends who would like to assist.
