      Mr. H. J. Clifford, Macquarie-street, Wind

      from the Australian Red Cross Society (Infor

      4386. Corporal Charles Clifford, 20th Batta
      lion : —
      Dear Sir, — We send you the following copy
      of a report, which our agents in London have
      sent to us, consisting of a statement made
      to them by the soldier whose name appears
      at the foot of the report: — "I knew him,
      (Corporal Clifford) well. He was Corporal
      of my gun in the 8th Platoon. I saw him
      fall at Ypres on the morning of the 20th of
      September, 1917. He was killed instantly,
      and never moved. Private H. Mudford, No
      6382, on the same gun, took the gun from
      him. We held the ground. I heard from a
      stretcher-bearer that he was buried near
      where he fell. Private Furlong, of the 20th
      Battalion, B. Co., stretcher-bearer, was the
      name of my informant."
      Informant: Private S. Gascoyne, 6104. 20th
      Australians, B. Coy., 8th Platoon, Machine
      Gun Section, Australian Camp, Roselles.
      Yours faithfully,
      G. W., RUTHERFORD.
      The Red Cross Society intimate that they
      have written to Privates Mudlord and Furlong
      for further particulars, which will be for- '
      warded on when received.
