   Second-Lieutenant Edgar S. Veevers, King's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment, was killed in action while discharging his duty in the front line trenches on July 10, aged twenty-two years. He was the youngest son of Mrs. Veevers, St.Michael's Hamlet, and the late Mr. Samuel Veevers, of Blundellsands. He was educated at the Merchant Taylors' School, Crosby, and Blundellsands House School. The young officer, soon after the outbreak of war, enlisted in one of the Comrades' Battalions K.L.R., and was subsequently wounded in France, where he served many months as a very gallant officer. His captain has testified to his heroic bravery in the struggle at Givenchy during April last, describing him as "a true officer and a gentleman in every sense of the word." His cheery and unselfish character won for him the affection and admiration of both his fellow officers and men,
