TWO SONS KILLED ALMOST ON SAME DAY.

Mr. George Fletcher, assistant secretary to the Department- well known in Waterford, where he periodically inspects the Technical Institute classes-has lost a second son, Sec.-Lieut. D. L. Fletcher, in the war. The poignancy of the loss is intensified by the fact that the announcement of it has followed almost immediately on the intimation of Lieut. Arnold Fletcher. Sec.-Lieut. Donal Lockhart Fletcher, of the Leinster Regt., died of wounds on April 12th at Salonika at the age of 20. He was educated at Dublin High School, entered Dublin University on April 27th, 1914, and joined the army on May 22nd, 1915. His gallant conduct won him mention in despatches.
