Death of Sergt. Quarterman


The family of ex-P.C. Quarterman has recently suffered its second war bereavement through the death of Sergt. Cecil Francis Quarterman, from consumption from the after effects of gas. Sergt. Quarterman was educated at Newbury Grammar School, from 1907 to 1910, and was afterwards employed in the office at the Albert Works, and also at Mr. Cary's.


He enlisted in 1913 in the R.G.A., and at the commencement of the war went on a secret expedition which lasted six weeks. He went to France in July 1915 with the 24th Siege Battery and saw fighting at Loos, through the Somme battles and at Ypres. He was gassed several times. In September 1917 he was shot through the shoulder from an aeroplane. He was invalided home being in hospital at Reading and Albion House. Recovering he was sent to the Artillery Reserve Brigade, at Shoreham, when in in 1919 he was made sergeant and educational instructor.


In last November he went to the R.A.S.C. Camp at Winchester, but becoming so seriously ill he was discharged from the army in February last, and at once went into Peppard Sanatorium. He returned home on the 10th of the present month, and died on Monday last, at the age of 26.


The funeral was yesterday, and Requiem Requiem Mass taking place in the St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church and the interment being at the Newtown Road Cemetery.


The mourners were Mr. T.D. Quarterman and Mrs. Quarterman, father and mother; Mr. G.C. Quarterman, brother; Miss Edith Quarterman and Miss Grace Quarterman, sisters.
