Needingworth Man Missing
News has reached the parents of Private F Easton that their son has been missing since June 15th. Private Easton joined the Bedfords some few months since, and only crossed to France about two months ago. Mr. and Mrs. Easton had only two sons, and the elder, also a soldier, in the 5th Northumberland Fusiliers, lost his life at Magersfontein during the South African Wars. Much sympathy is felt for Mr. and Mrs. Easton by all the inhabitants.
