Roll of Honour


We greatly regret to hear of the death of Lieut. A. N. Oakshott, only son of Dr. James Oakshott, Medical Superintendent of the Waterford Asylum, at the Front in France. Lieut. Oakshott's career in the Army was but short, but short as it was he had endeared himself by his winning ways to every man in his company and to his brother officers, from many of whom his father has received touching letters of regret and sympathy. His Major wrote: “He died very gallantly on the early morning of September 17th while leading his platoon in an attack on the German lines. Death must have been instantaneous, but before he met it he had shown an example of courage and determination which was most inspiring to his men. He was exceedingly popular in the battalion both among officers and men, and his death has been a great loss to us all.”
