The death has occurred in Alberta, Canada, of Mr Trevor Owen Cale, seventy, a native of Monmouthshire. He was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John George Cale, who at one time resided at New House farm, Llansoy near Usk.

Mr. Cale emigrated to Canada in 1910 and went to live at Weyburn Saskatchewan. At the outbreak of the first world war he was one of the first to volunteer for the forces and left for overseas service with the First Canadian Division. He saw action in France and Germany.

At the end of the war he was discharged in England and in 1919 married Miss Gertrude Elizabeth Jenkins of Cross farm, Llansoy.
