FUNERAL OF MR. WALTER SLOGGETT.
- The remains of Mr. W. Sloggett were laid to rest in Ventnor Cemetery on Monday. He died at the early age of 20, as a result of disease contracted on active service. The deepest sympathy is felt with his mother, who only last spring lost her husband. The Rev. N. Vickers officiated at the funeral and the mourners were Mrs. Sloggett, Mr. R. Sloggett, Mr. and Mrs. Evans and Mr. Vivian Yorke. Wreaths were from Mother and Dickie, aunt and uncle, Cyril and Ronnie, "Chrissie" and all at the Manor House, from "Bon," Mr. and Mrs. W.J. Knight, from Gladys, "In Memorium," a laurel wreath from the boys of the 3rd Ventnor troop of Boy Scouts, from an old schoolmate, Nicholas. Representatives of the Rechabite Society were at the graveside.

After living in Ventnor for 57½ years, Mrs. Sloggett left the town on Wednesday to make her home with her sister in South Wales. She is the widow of Mr. G. Sloggett [sic], who for 23 years was manager of Messrs. George Oliver's branch boot shop in High Street. Mrs. Sloggett lost her husband and son within three months of each other in 1919, and her other son died in 1923. It is, naturally, a big wrench to leave the town in which she has so many friends and interests, but Mrs. Sloggett's decision, we gather, was made in consequence of the loss of her home through enemy action. She will be greatly missed, and all who know her will join us in wishing her every happiness in her new home.
