Last week was recorded the sad news that Corpl Arthur Wyllie, the second son of Dr R.G.Wyllie was in hospital at Rouen. Unfortunately on Monday morning a wire was received from Rouen saying that he had died from his wounds. He was a bomber attached to the Worcestershire Regiment and took part in the recent successful advance. He was badly wounded with a broken leg and a severe wound on his thigh. On June 15 he was well enough to write a cheery letter to his family at home, but on June 21 a letter was received from the Matron of the Hospital saying he was dangerously ill, and the wound in his thigh would not heal up. On Monday morning a wire was received in Newbury to say he had died from his wounds. A letter written on Friday, afterwards arrived stating that the wound was very much worse, and that the leg was amputated above the knee. Those are all the details received by his friends of the wound and subsequent death. His brother, Wilfred, who is in the Red Cross Service at Boulogne was going to see him on Saturday, and it was hoped that he was able to arrive in time. Arthur Wyllie was 21 last March, and his death is a great blow to his father and sisters. Before the war he was employed by Messrs Day and Porter. He was educated at the Newbury Grammar School, and was generally liked, being a quiet unobtrusive youth, who was a great favourite with his friends. He joined up at the beginning of the war in the Berks Yeomanry, and specialised in bombing. He went abroad last year, and gained his stripes for meritorious service.
