The remains of the late John Martin, seaman RNRT, arrived in Bragar on Tuesday of last week from an English seaport. Youn gMartin had only recently joined the service, caught the influenza and other complications followed, with the result that he succumbed after ten days' illness. He was a young man of excellent repute, cheerful and bright, and a great favourite with young and old. He was buried in Bragar Cemetery. Great sympathy is felt for his widowed mother, brothers and sisters in their sad bereavement.
