A " SIXTH " VETERAN.

Liverpool Echo 29 April 1915

News has been received that Sergeant John Marrison, of Bootle, was killed during the fierce fighting in the neighbourhood of Ypres on Sunday, April 18. Seventeen years ago he joined the old 2nd King's Liverpool Volunteer Rifles, now the 6th Battalion King's (Liverpool) Regiment, and during that time was a keen and valuable member of the corps. Latterly he specialised in machine gun work, and had become a sergeant of the machine gun section. When the end came, in the words of his captain, he was making good use of his skill at a critical moment in the operations, when he was hit and sank quietly to the ground, unconscious, and died in a very few moments. Earlier in the operations he had earned the commendation of the colonel of a Regular battalion for the skill with which he handled the gun which he was then controlling, his work that night having been of the greatest value. He was buried by his comrades in a soldiers grave near the spot where he fell. He leaves behind him the memory of a kindly and engaging personality, not only in his family but among a large circle of regimental, business and personal friends. In civilian life he had been connected with the printing trade from his youth. He was well known on both sides of the river.

Seven officers and 217 men were lost. . The next-of-kin have all been informed, except in the cases of a few naval passengers, whose next-of-kin will be notified immediately the necessary information is received.

Malta January 26th,

So far as we know, 70 Maltese are missing as the result of the loss of the Louvain. These included practically all naval ratings, from assistant engineers ordinary seamen, of whom 24 formed part of the crew, while the remainder wore intended for disposal among ships of the fleet. Since Battle of Jutland this is the heaviest loss Malta has sustained at any time during the war, and brings vividly home the grim realities of war
