A. Buchanan, M.P., one of the Cnn^ullan editors visiting this coiintry a."! iijucsts of the Ministry of Information, tiiere is a young girl' from Lethbridge, on the nursing staff of the hospital. Alias ,Tean. ParkinsoUj who had only receni-ly arrived from Canada and who was the central figure in a rouiuuif; \>hich has just ended in tragedy. Miss Parkinson was "rn,Mged to Lieut. Clarence Sherlock. H.A.F., also of Lethbridge, who hud i-ecently be come a flying instructor. lUv.'oro starting in on his new woik, and as soon as ppssible after his fiancee's arrival in England; Lieut. ^i,erlock obtained ten. days' leave whicli low;; ftnd during tlie: duty, the two wandei'c the beautiful countrysydi' beside the river, where there a'r'' some ot the finest lovers' walks in UnKlnnd--ind Uiat is saying a groat i^ei!. tor all ot England is a wonderful sarden in the summer time. Then the young lieutenant went back to his "wm'gs" and his duty, but had an acciclbnt in almo,-she is one of the youngest of them, and was described to rile as ju.'?t a plhlc and white slip of a girl. She went immediately on night duty and is "carrying on" her work of mercy for the wounded soldiers trying to forget her own grief. A curious coincidence was the fact that the lovers, in one Of their wallvs, had strayed into the beautiful little cemetery on the Astpr^'estate, which was quite within hospital "boundfe," and while there, the young flying officer had said to his sweetheart, that if anything should "hi^ppen'.'-^ to him, he would like to be buried' tliere..' "She tried to laugli Iiiiii'out.of any thought ot such a thing aS deatli, but he insisted that one never 1aiew;*and after he was killed she received a letter, written and sealed at Uie close ot his ha:ppy holiday, tal'kiiig frankly over the, possibilities ot the future. He had been companioned with death, tor the past three and a half years he said, and he had never been afj'aid, nor even now, though deatli might be "just around the corner" and repeated the wish to be buried in the little cemetery they had visited. But ho still hoped she would never have to read that letter. It was to be posted only in ,case anything should happen to him. Yesterday I visited his grave; and saw thereon masses of liiji} lovely flow-ers thatv "only Bngland,/knows"-va white bridal-ll)te wreath from his fiancee, a pillow ot flowers from the nursing staff of the Conniaught Caua-dlan hospital, and Iributeip from his Plying Corps and from* individual friends, including Lt.-Col. Mewburn, chlot surgeon at the hospital, (of Calgary, formerly of Lethbridge), who recalled iiaving "brought the boy into the,world" twe'nty-four years ago. The fim'eral service was held'.lh the little chajiel near the cemetery, conducted by.Capt. Trench, ot EdiJfibiiton, and attended by the medical staff, nurses and other friends. Lieut. Sherlock came ov|^r with the Candlan Artillery, early in the. wail and though he had been two years in France, it seemed to be only recently that he had had this strange premonition of death. ; ' The oeniptery, whicli Mr. Buchanan also vlsltud, la unique, ljullt In a basiil-llke hollow in the hlllsidle, and surrounded .entirely by overarciiing and interlacing trees.
