Late Lieut. R. N. Dobbyn
The funeral took place on Monday, with full military honours, of the late Lieut. R. N Dobbyn, R.F.C, only son of the late Mr. Robert Dobbyn, Ballinakill House. The remains arrived at Waterford on Sunday from Croydon, where deceased was accidentally killed, and were conveyed to Ballinakill Church.
On Monday the funeral took place from the church to the ancient burial ground attached to the family residence, Ballinakill House. The attendance at the funeral was thoroughly representative and showed how widespread is the regret at the demise of this popular young gentleman .
The chief mourners were Mrs. Dobbyn (mother), Miss Dobbyn, Miss Iris Dobbyn and Mrs. Wm. Mackesy (sisters), Messrs. Newport (2) (uncles), Mr. W. A. Dobbyn Clerk of the Crown and Peace (first cousin), Lieut. A. L. Dobbyn, M.C.; Mr. M. H. Dobbyn, Mr. Francis Jones, and Mr. Herbert Goff (cousins).
The band of the 5th Lancers played the Dead March along the route, and the Last Post was sounded over the grave and three volleys fired, the firing party consisting of men of the Royal Irish Regiment from Clonmel.
The Rev. Canon Greenstreet and the Rev. Mr. Young officiated at the grave-side.
A number of floral tributes were laid on the grave.
