    • SAD DEATH OF A MARINE WHO SURVIVED TWO NAVAL BATTLES
       
      The death ofPte. J. A. Flint,  R.M., of 85 CampbellRoad, Walmer, occurred with tragic suddenness last Monday.  After serving afloat for the last six years,he came home on
      leave lastThursday, seemingly in excellent health. On Sunday evening he went with
      his wife for awalk to Fern Dairy, Upper Walmer, and returned apparently in the best of
      health.  On Monday morning about 9, he went into ashed in the back yard, and
      presumably, heturned giddy, and staggered, striking his forehead on a window ledge.  He dropped to the ground, and never regainedconsciousness.  He was taken to the R.M.Infirmary, where he died about 2:30. Deceased, who leaves a wife and three children, was employed at theworks department at the Depot previous to going afloat.  He had served on the Hermione, Black Prince,Liverpool, and Birkenhead.  He waspresent at both the naval battles at Heligoland, and off Jutland, being on theBirkenhead, a light cruiser, during the latter great fight.  He attributed the salvation of is ship in theterrific battle to the gallantry of the crew of the lost Invincible, which shipreceived a pounding intended for the Birkenhead.  Deceased, who attained his 38th birthday onthe 8th of July would have completed 21 years in the Marines next June.  The widow can give no reason to account forher husband's sudden death, unless it was that his joy at being with his wifeand children again after so long an absence and such a nerve-testingexperience, proved too much for him. Deceased was very well liked by his comrades, and was devoted to hiswife and children, with whom the utmost sympathy is felt.  Both deceased and Mrs. Flint have beenconnected with the Good Templary for some years.  The funeral took place on Thursday, at DealCemetery, the coffin bearing many beautiful wreaths, being drawn to theCemetery by deceased's comrades of A. Company, the Rev. Scott, (Junior Chaplainat the Depot), officiating.  The mournerswere Mrs. Flint and children; Mother and two brothers; Mrs. Hardwell (sister-inlaw); Mr. George Johnston; Mrs. Hooper, Forest Hill;  Mrs. Willshaw, representing the local GoodTemplary, Cr, and Mrs. F. A. Colyer being also present in that capacity.  Beautiful floral tributes were sent by thefollowing: -- Wife; Children; Mrs. R. C. Waters and family; Mrs. Bell; Mrs.Hodge and family; Mrs. Rich; Mrs. Hatch; Mr. and Mrs. Randall and Elsie;Officers and crew of the Birkenhead; Mr. S. Carter; R. M. Infirmary Staff.
