NELSON SOLDIER'S DEATH IN EGYPT

Private Albert Abbott, of the Somerset Light Infantry, after serving in Egypt two years, has died there from malaria. He was 40 years of age, and his home was at 69, George-street, Nelson. Prior to enlisting, he was connected with the Nelson Corps of the Salvation Army. A son of the deceased soldier, Private George Robert Abbott, of the East Lancashire Regiment, has been at the Front since the beginning of the war, and has been wounded three times. He is 23 years old.

Mrs. Abbott has received a letter from the Sister-in-charge of the hospital in which her husband died, in which she said: "We all miss your husband very much. His patience and cheerfulness were a great example, and even when in great pain he smiled cheerfully."
