Information: Second Lieutenant Frederick Hamilton Norway, 2nd Batt. Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, has died in hospital in France from the effects of wounds sustained on June 13th, when the section of the trench of which he was in command was blown up by a German mine. Lieut. Norway thereupon collected a few unwounded men and led them out over the parapet of the trench under heavy shell-fire to dig out their comrades, in doing which he was struck by a shell, from the effects of which he died later. Lieut. Norway was the elder son of Mr. Arthur H. Norway, South Hill, Blackrock, and was only in his 19th year. He was educated at Rugby and subsequently entered Trinity College, but on the outbreak of the war he at once volunteered and left for the front.
