The latter part:

The deceased, who was at the front since the outbreak of hostilities, was in almost every engagement since the famous retreat from M? down to the day of his death, and in letters to his friends spoke very lightly of the hardships of life in the trenches. The poor fellow was a host? In himself? And his humorous original ??? in the Temperance Hall will be remembered even when this terrible crisis has passed into history.

[COLOR=black][FONT=Trebuchet MS]Croker, 2nd Lieutenant William Charles Robert, 1st Battalion Royal Munster Fusiliers[/FONT][/COLOR]
[INDENT] [COLOR=black][FONT=Trebuchet MS]He was killed in action at Boshof February 23rd, 1902. He came of a race of soldiers, and was the only son of Major W Croker, 27th Inniskillings. He was born at Trough Castle, Limerick, June 1882, and entered the Royal Munster Fusiliers from the Royal Military College in May 1900. On the day he was killed 2nd Lieutenant Croker was on convoy duty, and with a small party of sixteen men got separated from the main body, and being largely outnumbered and their ammunition expended, were called on to surrender. 2nd Lieutenant Croker's answer was "never” and he was then shot dead at close quarters. Corporal Cahill, the next senior, on refusing to surrender, was also killed. 2nd Lieutenant Croker and Corporal Cahill were buried at Boshof, and a memorial was erected at Kimberley to their memory, and that of five soldiers of their company, who fell in this engagement.[/FONT][/COLOR]
