30/11/2018 L/Corp Thomas John Martin It is with sincere regret that we chronicle the death of the above named young man, which took place at the military hospital, Ballyshannon on 22nd July. The deceased was the nephew of Messrs John and Samuel Kelly of Ballinacross. He nobly responded to Kitchener’s call, and had not appendicitis claimed him, he would have, like many of Ulster’s sons, sustained its best traditions on the battlefield. He was 19 years of age, and when last home on a short furlough about the 12th July, looked in the pink of condition. On returning to camp at Finner on 13th July, he took suddenly ill on the way. He was removed to hospital and underwent an operation, but succumbed a few hours afterwards. His remains, enclosed in a solid oak casket, were conveyed by motor to the residence of his uncle, Mr J Kelly, on Friday morning and interred in the family burying ground, Knockloughrim United Free Church. The officiating clergyman was Rev A Thompson, B.A., Tobermore. The utmost sympathy is felt in the surrounding neighbourhood at the sudden termination of the life of such a staunch young man. He was a general favourite both at camp and in the district to which he belonged. The chief mourners were – R J Martin (brother); Thomas Kelly (grandfather), Samuel Kelly, John Kelly, James Martin (uncles). Wreaths were sent by his sister, A J Martin and his aunt, Mrs Kelly.
