    • The Border Morning Mail and Riverina Times Monday 6 May 1918
      BARNAWARTHA.
      Word has been received that Sergeant
      Ted Draper has been wounded in France.
      This is the second time that Teddy has
      been wounded. He has been three years
      on service and his friends hope that his
      wound is not a severe one. -
      Private "Paddy" Devitt was also wounded
      in this big fight. This is "Paddy's"
      second time also. He was wounded at
      Pozieres about two years ago, being shot
      in the- heel. It was thought then that
      he would be invalided home, but he was
      patched up and returned to the firing line.
      "Paddy" is a cousin of Private George
      Boyce, of Tallangatta; whose death in
      action was reported last week. They are
      grandsons of late Mr. and Mrs. Boyce, of
      Wangaratta, formerly of Barnawartha.
