INDIAN'S QUAINT BURIAL. - The strange burial rites of the Indians were performed at Epsom Cemetery on Saturday at the funeral of one of the Gurkhas sent over for Saturday's procession. His death took place at Horton Hospital, whither he was removed from the camp at Hampton Court suffering from influenza, and his body was conveyed in a motor ambulance to the cemetery. Here a party of Indian officers, N.C.O.s and men dug a grave six feet deep and lowered the coffin which was covered with a white sheet. They then dropped coppers on the coffin and filled in the grave.
Son of Subidal Rai, of Thamthum, Ilam, Nepal.

12th to 20th. A very peaceful tour during which time it became apparent that the suspected enemy attack would not develop on our front. Owing to one of our cylinder discharges which had taken place the night before we went in, there was a quantity of gas in our front line for a day or two owing to leaky cylinders. These were eventually removed.
There was the usual patrolling activity on our part, but it was hindered by the nature of No Mans Land which was full of huge old mine craters. The enemy fired gas projectors on the Division on our right.

No sooner had the Lincolnshire reached their new line than Captain P.H. Hansen, the Adjutant, calling for volunteers to assist him, dashed back through clouds of smoke and a stream of bullets into the burning scrub, which by now gave off a terrific heat. He did this to save wounded men from being burned alive. Six times he went three hundred yards into that inferno and rescued six men from a horrible death. He was awarded the VC. Lance-Corporal AH Breeze and two others who went out with Captain Hansen were awarded the DCM. Many wounded were burned alive; none of the battalion missing were ever seen again.
LEONARD HAROLD RATCLIFF, was killed in action at Gallipoli on 9th August 1915.

The line occupied by the Battalion was about 300 yards long and facing nearly due east. The German line we were told off to attack was about 450 yards long and strongly fortified, powerfully strengthened with flank defence, wire in front of exceptionally thick wire and facing strong posts. There were small redoubts manned with numerous machine guns at intervals, and the left flank was enfiladed by a variety of fire from HOHENZOLLERN FORT and FOSSE 8.
The distance to be traversed by the battalion in the attack before reaching the enemy's lines was approx 500 yards. Behind the enemy's front line were communication trenches and a powerful 2nd line, and behind that on higher ground were the QUARRIES and further on CITÉ ST ELIE.
At 6.28am the order "Get ready to charge" came down the line and Lieut COOPER, whose eyes had been on his watch, gave the order "Scouts and wire cutters advance". Directly after, the order to the Coys to advance was given, and "C" Coy climbed up the ladders and advanced through the smoke, which was very dense. This smoke I may mention was chiefly caused by "smoke bombs" smoke candles and gas, there was also a thick cold mist and a drizzling rain.
Lieut COOPER led his men on with the utmost gallantry and was killed on the German wire, had he lived he would have been recommended for the D.S.O. He was a most gallant officer and much loved and respected by all ranks. "A" Company came on splendidly ably led by Captain Henry de TRAFFORD, who behaved with the greatest coolness and daring and would have been recommended for the D.S.O. had he not been killed. He fell on the German wire, and his last words were "Don't mind me. Push ahead". Truly he and Lieut COOPER and other brave officers and N.C.Os and men deserve the undying gratitude and respect of their country and their Regiment. ----------
"D" Company led by Captain LIMBERY did gallant work under their plucky young commander who, with many others was wounded. CAPT LIMBERY was recommended for the Military Cross. ----------
The regiment had to cross a fire zone of about 500 yards exposed to very heavy gun, machine gun and rifle fire, and storm a powerful line of trenches protected by broad strong lines of thick barbed wire. There was a strong support line behind the front line on higher ground and behind that the famous "QUARRIES" on still higher ground. The final objective of the 22nd Infantry Brigade was Cité St Elie, behind a very powerfully entrenched and wired position.
To make a long story short the gallant 1st Battalion SOUTH STAFFORDSHIRE REGIMENT rose to their feet at 6.28am on the 25 September 1915, on the order to "advance" being given, they advanced in extended order at about 3 paces interval between men and moved steadily forward against this almost impregnable position. They stormed it, took the 2nd support line and what remained of this magnificent old regiment moved on and with other corps mixed up with them captured the "QUARRIES" and some of them under the C.O. went on up to within about 50 yards of the German position at Cité St Elie. The regiment lost in this attack about the following number of officers N.C.Os and men:-
- 430 N.C.Os and men were killed or wounded out of 729 who went into action.
- Officers 9 killed 8 wounded, one died of wounds, 1 gassed. Total 18 out of 21 who went into action.
EWELL PARISH COUNCIL. Mr Glyn had heard of two other deaths since the last meeting ------ one of Mrs Reynard's sons, Henry had been reported killed. He proposed a letter of sympathy be sent.
6 Aug 1916 "He was my platoon officer XIV. I saw him shot through both knees on the parapet of the German first line trenches. He was unable to move. We went on and he was left behind. We did not retire back and the ground on which we left him is still in our possession. We have never heard of him since." L Cpl Eggington 9304 D. Lewis Gun School, Etaples.
I well remember seeing an officer of our platoon XII killed at Loos. He was a very dark man and I think his name was Reynard. He led his platoon in the charge but was shot in the stomach very soon after we started. I saw him drop. He gave a groan and then stretched right out. I was sure he died immediately. We had to charge on and left him lying there." Pte Heath 8949 Etaples 13 Aug 1916
EWELL PARISH COUNCIL. ROLL OF HONOUR. Mrs. Reynard and family wrote thanking the Council for its expression of sympathy with them in the loss they had sustained by the death of Lieut H. C. Reynard.

MILITARY FUNERAL AT EPSOM.
THE GRIEF OF WOMEN
The first death at the County of London War Hospital occurred on Saturday. Up to that time there had been about 900 admissions, and the fact that there has so far been only one patient to die is something upon which the staff has reason to congratulate itself. No war hospital, which receives cases straight from the front, cases which include a proportion of very severely wounded, can expect to keep death entirely out of its wards, and from time to time there are likely to be through the streets of Epsom sad processions of the kind that were witnessed on Wednesday afternoon. Pte. W. E. (sic) Riley was the soldier who passed away on Saturday, death being due to cellulitis, a form of poisoning, following an amputation. The deceased was a member of the 1st Battalion of the Northumberland Fusiliers, and was one of the undistinguished heroes who fight and die for their country without any record being kept of their brave deeds in days when so many men are acting heroically. All the men who die at the hospital will be buried with military honours, and buried in one particular spot at the Epsom Cemetery, unless, in accordance with wishes of relatives, the burial takes place in some other cemetery. A part of the Epsom Cemetery has been set aside by the Urban Council for men who die at the County of London War Hospital or the Convalescent Camp, Woodcote Park. It is hoped that the burials will be few, but in the space reserved for the soldier heroes as many as 500 can, if unfortunately necessary, be laid to rest. Men of different religious denominations will be placed in different graves. In the case of those belonging to the same church it is proposed that the number of interments in each grave shall be ten. A large number this, and the grave in which the body of Pte. Riley was lowered on Wednesday is 22ft. deep, deeper than any other at the cemetery. This soldiers' space is close to and in view of Ashley-road, and at the end of the war there will be a monument erected in the centre calling the attention of the passer-by to the fact that it marks the portion of the cemetery where sleep the men who gave all they could for England. There will also doubtless be something to mark the resting place of those three soldiers who have died at the Epsom and Ewell War Hospital, and are in one grave in another part of the cemetery.
On Wednesday the funeral party left the County of London War Hospital at two o'clock, passing between lines of members of the hospital staff. At the head of the procession walked a firing party, supplied by the Royal Fusiliers (P.S. Brigade) at the Farm Camp. The men walked with arms reversed. Immediately behind them were buglers, and then came the hospital gun carriage, on which was the coffin, covered with the Union Jack. On the coffin had been placed the deceased's belt and side arms. Behind the gun carriage were two mourning coaches, in which were the relatives, and an open carriage, lent by Mr. W. G. Langlands, in which rode two of the wounded patients at the hospital. A number of Royal Fusiliers from the Farm Camp formed the rear of the procession. A great number of the inhabitants lined the streets as the deceased was borne to the cemetery, where was gathered one of the largest funeral crowds seen at Epsom for a very ling time. The great majority of those present were women, and many of them quite failed to hide their feelings when farewell was taken of the deceased soldier. The final part of the funeral service had been conducted in the Church of England Chapel by the hospital chaplain (the Rev. Hockley), who also read at the graveside, the final sentences of the service. When the firing party had fired three volleys, and the buglers had sounded the "Last Post," a number of women round the grave were no longer able to hide their emotion. Men, in the face of the death of their countryman in this war, may preserve a certain amount of stoicism, but not so easy is it for the women to do this. The distress of the principle mourners - who had come from Wimbledon - was very great, and many looks of sympathy went out to them. When the womenfolk were able to look down on the coffin they covered it with flowers. It was their tangible tribute of sorrow and of gratitude. Though there were no representatives of the hospital staff in the procession, there were a number of workers at the institute among the crowd. Among others present were Messrs. E. Cornfield, F. G. Greenslade, J. M. Oldridge, H. Newham, P. J. Hillyer, H. Davey, A. J. Knight, etc. The floral tributes were from the following: "In loving memory of my dear husband, from his loving wife and children" ; Jennie and George; Addie and Ted; Sister Emily; Corpl. Borras and friends; Mrs. Sharpe and family. The coffin, which was of regulation kind for military funerals, was of polished elm, with black fittings, lined inside with swansdown sheets. The inscription was : "Pte. W. E. (sic) Riley, 9331, 1st Northumberland Fusiliers, died 17 July 1915, aged 45 years." The funeral arrangements were carried out by Messrs. E. Longhurst and Sons.
MILITARY FUNERAL AT EPSOM.
AN IMPRESSIVE SCENE.
On Wednesday large crowds lined the streets of Epsom and thronged the cemetery when a military funeral took place. The dead soldier was Pte. W. E. (sic) Riley, of the Northumberland Fusiliers, and he was the first inmate of the County of London War Hospital to succumb to the injuries he received whilst fighting against the Huns. Riley, who was 45, came from Pickering, Scarborough (sic). He was a Reservist who saw service in the Boer War. He was badly wounded in the left arm and the limb was amputated at the front. He was in a precarious condition when he was brought to Epsom, and he died on Saturday afternoon from septicaemia. He leaves a widow and four children.
The funeral took place in Epsom Cemetery, in that portion which has been set aside for the men who die in the Horton Hospital and the Woodcote Convalescent Camp. This was the first interment in that part of the ground, which is near Ashley-road. It is proposed to erect a monument on the site eventually.
The procession left the hospital about two o'clock. The firing party was in front, the men coming from the Royal Fusiliers (Public Schools Brigade) stationed at he Farm Camp. Then followed the buglers after which came the gun carriage with the coffin covered with the Union Jack, and with the dead soldier's belt and side arms laid on top. There were two mourning coaches for the relatives, and then an open carriage, lent by Mr. W. G. Langlands, in which were two wounded soldiers from the hospital. The rear was brought up by more U.P.S. men.
The service was conducted by the hospital chaplain, the Rev. A. Hockley, and the impressive service was reverently listened to by the large crowd present. Around the graveside were many men from the Woodcote Park Camp, looking conspicuous in their blue uniforms.
After the committal portions of the service had been intoned the firing party fired three volleys and the "Last Post" was sounded by the buglers. Many of those present were unable to restrain their tears. A number of women threw flowers on the coffin. This was of polished elm with black fittings, lined inside with swansdown. The inscription on the plate was "Pte. W. E. (sic) Riley 9331: 1st Northumberland Fusiliers. Died July 17th 1915. Aged 45.
