Frank was 29 years of age, and joined the Banker’s Battalion about seven months ago. Recently he went to the Front, and was transferred to a battalion of Surrey Rifles. We understand he was killed by a grenade in the trenches and that death was instantaneous.
Young Tyrrell was a gentlemanly, quiet and much liked young fellow, and assisted his father at his business in Queen’s Road”
