Pte. Ross Irwin, Oakwood
takes Upper School Work
on the Italian Front

Oakwood, June 26, (PNS) – Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Irwin, here, have received word from their son, Pte. Ross Irwin in Italy, that he has been able to continue his High School work. The soldiers there have one day a week for study, and he has passed several of his senior matriculation subjects taking high first class honours in most of them. These papers were legion papers.


He is continuing work under the instruction of Major T.H. Eberlee, who is Educational Officer over there.


Although Ross has been a student of Little Britain High School, he is very happy to have such a close neighbor from home for an instructor.
