Shandon boy’s sad death

Robert Hill (13) succumbed in the Victoria Infirmary, Helensburgh, yesterday, to injuries sustained through the accidental discharge of a gun in the hands of a comrade.

The boys had been shooting squirrels on Tuesday night and the gun went off, the charge lodging in the right shoulder of Hill who had been walking 10 yards in front. Hill was the son of Robert Hill, Lagbuie, Shandon, a soldier in France.
