Ventnor and the War
Deep regret is felt in the town and neighbourhood of the death, while on active service overseas, of Ord. Seaman F. Fallick, of Whitwell, at the age of 21 years. Joining up in the autumn of last year he passed through two naval training centres in this country before being posted abroad. Much sympathy is being shown to his family in their sad loss. The young fellow made many friends in the town while in the employ of Messrs. Morris, of Nettlecombe Farm, Whitwell, and was well known amongst Football and Darts enthusiasts.

Ventnor and the War
... There was a full congregation at the Whitwell Methodist Church on Sunday evening, when a memorial service to the late Ord. Seaman F. ("Snap") Fallick, only son of Mr. and Mrs. George Fallick, of Crombley Cottage, Whitwell, was conducted by Mr. W. Taylor, of Apse Heath. The young man, whose death from pneumonia, contracted on active service overseas, we briefly recorded last week, had been brought up in the Methodist Sunday School, and in Methodist and other circles his death at such an early age - he was only 21 - cast quite a gloom. His cheerful, quiet disposition ensured him many friends. Mr. Taylor made sympathetic reference to the sad loss sustained by the bereaved parents and members of the family, and paid a touching tribute to the sterling worth of the young lad whose promising career had been so abruptly ended. The deceased's favourite hymns, including "Abide with me," were feelingly sung. On the previous Sunday at the Parish Church, the Vicar (Rev. C. F. Aker) spoke feelingly of the loss the village had sustained and expressed the deep sympathy of the parishioners with the bereaved family.
