Obituary:

Sydney was serving near Ypres at the time of his death. A letter in the Mercury Read: 

It is with great sorrow that I write these few lines to you to tell you that poor Sid has been shot through the lungs with a piece of shell. They got him into bed and he lived a little while. It is very sad, such a fine fellow.
