The late Tpr Frank Brown.
Waihi, Thursday. — Recent cables announced the death, from wounds, of Trooper Frank Brown, brother to Gilbert Brown, Wuihi, and late of Tauranga. Trooper Wrigley, who left Tauranga with Frank Brown, writing to friends, who received the letter just before the cable announcing the death, said : — ' Frank was engaged practically his whole time in scouting, and although we are both in the same Company, there are times when I don't see him for days. He is as plucky as you make them and is the admiration of his comrades. He has been at the game for months and only had one break, when he was tripped up with a bad attack of measlei. On coming out of the hospital he again went in for scouting, which he is now engaged in. He has had more than one narrow, escape; having had two horses shot under him. You will remember poor Fred Wylie— he and Frank were together when the former was shot reconnoitring a Boer house. They "were on opposite sides when, from inside, the Boers shot Wylie dead. It is not dear yet how Frank managed to escape as the house* was full of Boers. Frank, as you know, is a good rider and considered about as good a horseman as we have here. At the conclusion of the war, and goodness knows when it will be, we are looking forward to coming home. 1
