The death is reported in St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney, of Mr Bertram Mutch after a comparatively short illness. Word of his passing was received in Braidwood with deep regret, for the deceased was very well known here, having been employed in the post office for some years. While in Braidwood he married Miss Maude Backhouse, daughter of Mr and Mrs R Backhouse. He was a capable, conscientious officer, and made many [friends] while working in the post district. Born at Cootamundra he went into the post office there, later being transferred to Braidwood. After leaving here he served in various country centres, including Wagga and Maitland, and finally went to Canberra, from where he was transferred to the Dept. of the Interior, where he remained until he was compelled to enter hospital. In St Vincent's he underwent three major operations, the last being a little over a week ago. Despite his dogged courage and great fight to live, his strength gradually gave out and he passed away last Wednesday morning. He is survived by his wife and children Kevin, Marjorie, Fay, Joy and Allan. His mother, three sisters ......... and one brother .... survive, to whom the "Review" extends its sincere sympathy. The funeral took place at Northern Suburbs Cemetery on Friday last. Deceased was 42 years old

An inquest was commenced at the local Hospital on Saturday morning, before the Coroner (Mr. James Stevenson, J.P.), concerning the death of William Wales. ? John William Bradwell, Constable of Police, stationed at Burrowa, deposed : About 6 o'clock last night, from something I heard, I proceeded in company with Dr. Le Fevre, to, about 4 miles from Burrowa, and there saw a man named Michael Muldowney with a wound on the top of his head, lying on a stretcher; about fifty yards away, I saw the deceased William Wales, lying on his back, with a big gash right across his head, and his brains protruding ; he was then quite dead, and a considerable quantity of blood was near where his head was lying ; with the assistance of Constable Lord, I removed the body to the morgue at the local hospital ; on searching the body I found a small purse containing 6s 6d, one gold ring, one knife, and a piece of tobacco ; I was informed that he owns a bicycle and a tent, which is now in my possession ; he was working with contractors who ware engaged grubbing 700 acres of land ; about 6 feet from where deceased was lying I saw a grubbing plant, a portion of which I took possession of ; it is ... a green pole with about a foot broken off the end, which I now produce. ? ? ?
John Joseph McGann, labourer, residing at Burrowa, deposed : On yesterday evening I was working On Gowrie ; I was engaged along with Michael Muldowney and the deceased William Wales, whose dead body I viewed this morning at the morgue ; we were working with a machine for pulling down trees ; it was worked with a wire rope by two levers attached to two rollers on the machine ; there is a wire rope about 2/4 or ? of an inch in thickness ? from the rollers; I was. on one lever and the deceased and Michael Muldowney was on the other ; when we had it at full pressure the lever that Michael Muldowney and the deceased were on, snapped, which had the effect of throwing the full weight of the pres- sure on my lever, resulting in me being thrown away, and the lever striking deceased and Muldowney ; on recovering myself, I saw the other two men lying on the ground ; I then sang out to men who were working about 150 yards away, before which I examined my mates; I saw deceased's brains protruding, and observed that Muldowney was seriously injured ; I then ran to Mr. Spicer's home, whose land we were working on, for the purpose of getting a vehicle to remove them to town ; while I was absent someone went to inform the Doctor and the Police; subsequently the Police removed deceased to the morgue at the local hospital, and the Doctor advised ? that Muldowney be sent to the Young hospital; I attribute the accident which caused the death of deceased to the insufficiency of strength of the lever put in in the morning ; the lever was got by Muldowney who put it in the machine ; It was as large if not slightly larger than the previous one we were using, and larger than the lever I was using ; the deceased informed me that the machine was one of bis own invention ; the death of deceased ? was solely caused by the sudden snapping of the lever, and not by the negligence of anyone present; the deceased was, I am informed, unmarried, and has been residing in the Burrowa district for the past four years, and I also understand that his parents reside at Wyalong. ?

John Speechly Le Fevre deposed : I am a legally qualified Medical Prac titioner and Government Medical offi- cer, residing at Burrowa ; about 6 ? o'clock yesterday evening I received word that there had been an accident at Gowrie, and that one man had been killed, and another seriously injured ? in company with Constable Bradwell,proceeded to the place of the acci- dent ; I first examined a man named Muldowney, who was conscious, and was suffering from a compound depressed fracture of the skull ; I dressed his wounds and then examined deceased William Wales, who was lying where he fell near the machine he was working; he was quite dead, the roof of hiswas smashed completely off, and the brain was protruding ; death had been instantaneous from some blow on the head causing the above injuries, and from the evidence I have heard, and what I saw at the scene of the accident, the blow was caused by one of the levers of the machine flying back and striking deceased.this stage the Coroner adjourned the inquest until 11 a.m. on Monday, to allow of the father of deceased being present to give evidence.

The inquest was resumed today by the Coroner. George Wales, miner, residing at Wyalong, deposed : I received information of the death of my son William, on Saturday, 8th inst. ; I last saw my son alive about three yeara ago last February ; at that time he was in his usual health ; I did not see the dead body, but attended the funeral yesterday ; he was a single man ; he had no property when I last saw him; he was born at Hovell's Creek, near Frogmore, in the Burrowa district, on the 2nd May, 1864, being 46 years old last May. This concluded the evidence.Coroner found that the said William Wales at Gowrie, near Bur- rowa, in the State of N.S.W., on 7th day of April, 1911, died from the effects of injuries accidentally received on the same day, through being struck by the lever of a tree-grubbing machine, owing to the breaking of one of the levers with which he was engaged working.

Funeral took place on Sunday afternoon to the Catholic portion of the Burrowa cemetery, and was largely attended, Rev. Fr. Fogarty officiating at the grave. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Messrs. G. Patterson & Son. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the relatives of the deceased. They have asked us to convey their sincere thanks for the many kindnesses received at the hands of the Burrowa people.
Wales, William (I8532)

The inquiry by Mr. T. P. MacMahon in connection with the drowning of Mr. Loiterton was conducted on Monday. And the facts elicited differ somewhat from the version as given by us on Monday. The evidence was as follows:

Mrs. Alma Ellen Loiterton, widow of deceased, deposed: I last saw my husband alive about 2.30 on Saturday. He left home in company with his sons, Wallace, 14, and Lindsay, aged 12. He said to tbcm, "Come on, we will shoot some rabbits!" One of the boys took a pea rifle, and the deceased took his gun. The next I knew was when Mr. Ernest Corby came to my house, about 6, and said there was an accident. He said it came through the 'phone that Mr. Loiterton was drowned. Saw the body brought to my home subsequently, about 1 o'clock on Sunday morning. Have lived on the best of terms with him. He was perfectly sober at the time he left home. He was a healthy man, and did not suffer from cramps.

Wallace Loiterton deposed: We went to Mr. O'Dea's place first, and then to Davidson's horse-shoe dam. Father was carrying a shot gun, and I a rifle. Father shot two ducks. I took my boots off, and got one. Father walked down the dam after two more ducks that he saw fly away. Whilst he was away I tried to get the other duck we left in the water. Father shot the other two, and came back to where I was trying to get the duck out of the water. I saw him take off his clothes. He said, "I am going in after the duck." I said, "Don't.'' He made no reply, but went in. He got to where the duck was, and was swimining, and shoving it in front of him. He was fifteen or eighteen yards from the bank, and was swimming to the far end of the dam. I heard him say, "get a stick." I ran and got a stick. It was only a short one. I threw it in to see if he could get hold of it. He sank. I got a longer stick then, and went in up to my neck to see if I could reach him. He came up, but I could not reach him. He went down again. I went under the water myself, and when I came up I could not see my father. I told my brother to run O'Dea's, but I called him back and went to Davidson's. Mr. Davidson was not at home, but a man was there, and he got on a horse, and rode in front of me to the dam. When we got there he said it was no use one man trying to do anything, and the best thing I could do was to go to O'Dea's, and get him to 'phone to the police. I and my brother went to O'Dea's. He was out. Mrs. O 'Dea 'phoned Roberts. I and Douglas O 'Dea then went and got father's horse, where we left it in the lane. Mother came to O'Dea's. Father was a good swimmer. I thought he could easily swim out. He did not say that anything was wrong with him when he called out, but appeared to be trying to swim. I did not see his hands. He did not appear able to use them. It was about 4.30 when father was drowned.

William Corby, farmer, Jindalee, deposed to going to the dam. Five others were there. I tried with a rope and stick to drag the dam, but without effect. The police came with a grappling iron and ropes. I pulled the body out about midnight. It was naked. His knees were bent, and arms doubled up as if cramped. The body was in ten or twelve feet of water. A fair swimmer could get out of the dam.

Sergeant Stutchbury corroborated about the body being pulled out. His arms were across his chest as if cramped, and the knees drawn up. I am of opinion he was cramped.

A finding of "accidental" was returned.

The Shipwreck of the "LONDON" - 1866

Many years have elapsed since we have had to record a disaster at sea so terrible in it's details, and involving so wholesale a sacrifice of life, as that which we have today to announce. The event will appear the more appalling to our readers from the fact that a brief ten days ago every one of that ill-fated band of men, women, and children, whose corpses now lie far beneath the ocean wave, were living, active, hopeful, and were gazing on the hills that shut in the Plymouth sound.

Intelligence reached Falmouth yesterday that the fine Australian passenger vessel, the 'London', foundered at sea on Thursday last, and that of her crew and passengers, 289 all told, the only survivors, nineteen in number, had landed at the westermost Channel port. The particulars of the occurrence, as gained from the few who have been left to tell the tale, we proceed to give.

The 'London' was one of the newest and finest of the Australian passenger ships belonging to Messrs. Money, Wigram, and Co., by which eminent firm she was built at their yard at Blackwall.

She was of 1,752 tons register, and was fitted with an auxiliary screw, her engines being of '800 horsepower indicated. She was built in pursuance of the plan for steaming to Australia round the Southern Capes, and she has been lost while on her third voyage to Melbourne.

On her two previous voyages her great excellence as passenger ship has attracted to her a full compliment of passengers- a somewhat greater number even than accompanied her on her present disastrous voyage, and her performances have fully realised the high expectations which were entertained respecting her. Her estimated value, exclusive of a full and valuable cargo was from 70,000 pounds to 80,000 pounds.

She was commanded by Captain J. Bohun Martin, a gentleman in the prime of life, who not only gained a more than ordinary share of respect from the thousands of passengers that had crossed the ocean under his care, but was reputed to be one of the smartest and most trustworthy of the officers employed in the Australian fleet of Messrs. Wigram, of which he was a senior captain. He had previously for several years been engaged in Colonial trade. He was unmarried, having made his ship his inseparable companion, and receiving in the cordial friendship of the passengers who had sailed with him a reward for that assiduous attention to their comfort and safety to which he had ever displayed.

On the 30th of December, under the care of Captain Martin, the 'London' left Gravesend, and encountered on her passage down Channel such severe weather that she was compelled for a short time to take shelter at Spithead. She arrived at Plymouth on the 4th instant, and embarked a large number of passengers, an unusually large proportion of whom were old colonists returning to Australia; who had been awaiting her arrival at the various hotels at Plymouth.

In addition to sixty cabin passengers, she had on board about one hundred and forty second and third-class passengers, which, with the crew of about ninety, made up her compliment of 289 souls on board. The passengers were embarked under the super-intendance of Messrs. J.B. Wilcocks and Co., emigration and shipping agents, of Plymouth. One only, Miss Penny Batchelor, of Union-street, Stonehouse, was from the immediate neighborhood of Plymouth, but there was a large sprinkling of Cornish men and women.
Thus admirably equipped and fully freighted, the London sailed from Plymouth Sound on Saturday, the 6th inst. On the following day she encountered very heavy weather, with rain; boisterous and unsettled weather continuing on the 8th. This increased next day to a gale, during which a series of minor disasters befell her .

The jib-boom ,fore-topmast, top-gallantmast and royal-mast were carried away, and the port lifeboat was washed overboard and lost. This was in the morning, and as the storm was giving no signs of abatement she was at three o'clock next morning put about, Captain Martin intending to run back to Plymouth to refit. About this time, a tremendous sea, which terrified even the most hardened seamen, broke on board, doing great damage; the star-board lifeboat was carried away by the wave, and the cutter stove in.

At noon an observation was taken, the ship being then 46.48 N., and longitude 8.7 West-viz., in the Bay of Biscay, about 200 miles southwest of Land's End. The violent weather continued, and at half-past ten on Wednesday night the ship rolled and pitched fearfully, and shipped such quantities of water on deck as to carry away the engine-room hatch, and the water soon found it's way into the engine-room, putting out the fires, and thus stopping the engines. The pumps were kept incessantly going the whole night, all the passengers who were capable of rendering any help working with the utmost energy to assist the crew to keep the ship afloat, by bailing with buckets in addition to the pumps.

During that frightful night - it will be remembered when thirty vessels were driven ashore in Torbay- the gale increased, if possible, in violence every hour, until it assumed the character of a hurricane, with a fearful cross sea, which incessantly made clean breaches over the hapless vessel. The utmost efforts were made, but without avail, to secure the engine-room hatch, and about four a.m. the stern ports were stove in by the sea, and the exertions made to close them up again were wholly useless. The passengers and crew this whole time behaved exceedingly well, and worked orderly with an energy which showed it was for their lives they strove. But the wa'er continued to increase and all command of the ship was lost, until it became evident that further effort was hopeless.

It was then, at ten o'clock on the morning of that fatal Thursday, that Captain Martin had the terrible task of making known to the 200 passengers that the ship was sinking, and they must prepare for the worst. She was then as low in the water as the main chains. An effort was then made to lower the boats, and the starboard iron pinnance was lowered, with five men aboard her, one of them being a passenger from Penzance. In the terrific sea prevailing she was quickly swamped, and went down, but the five men in her were got on board the ship. This catastrophe had the effect of intimidating the crew from attempting to launch the three remaining boats, and all on board began to realise the dreadful fate which impended.

The whole of the passengers and crew gathered as with one consent to the chief saloon, and having been told calmly by Captain Martin that there was no hope left, a remarkable and unanimous spirit of resignation came over them at once. There was no screaming or shrieking by women or men, no rushing on deck, or frantic cries, all calmly resorted to the saloon, where the Rev. Mr. Draper, one of the passengers, prayed aloud, and exhorted the unhappy creatures by whom he was surrounded. Dismay was present to every heart but disorder to none. Mothers were weeping sadly over the little ones about with them to be engulfed, and the children, ignorant of their coming death, were pitifully enquiring the cause of so much woe. Friends were taking leave of friends, as if preparing for a long journey, others were crouched down with Bibles in their hands, endeavoring to snatch consolation from passages long known or long neglected.

Incredible, we are told, was the composure which, under such circumstances, reigned around. Captain Martin stationed himself in the poop, going occasionally forward, or into the saloon; but to none could he offer a word of comfort, by telling then that their safety was even probable. He joined now and then for a few moments in the public devotions, but his place to the last was on the deck.

About two o'clock in the afternoon, the water gaining fast on the ship, and no signs of the storm subsiding being apparent, a small band of men determined to trust themselves to the mercy of the waves in a boat rather that go down without a struggle. Leaving the saloon, therefore, they got out and lowered the port cutter, into which sixteen of the crew and 3 of the passengers succeeded in getting, and in launching her clear of the ship. These nineteen men shouted to the captain to come with them, but with that heroic courage which was his chief characteristic, he declined to go with them, saying, " No, I will go down with the passengers; but I wish you God speed and safe to land."

The boat then pulled away, tossing about helplessly on the crests of the gigantic waves. Scarcely had they gone eighty yards, or been five minutes off the deck, when the fine steamer went down stern foremost with her crowd of human beings, from whom one confused cry of helpless terror arose, and all was silent forever.

Mention was made on Wednesday of the Rev. Mr. Draper's exhortations to the unhappy people in the chief saloon. The women sat around him reading Bibles with the children, and occasionally some man or woman would step up to Mr. Draper and say, "Pray with me Mr. Draper," -a request that was always complied with. Up to the time the ship went down the reverend gentlemen ministered to those among whom he moved constantly. He was heard to say repeatedly, "Oh, God, may those that are not converted be converted now- hundreds of them!"
After the pinnace had got away from the 'London', and in a brief interval before she foundered, a rush was seen to be made to the two remaining boats, but the efforts to launch them were ineffectual, and the suddenness of the foundering at last- the 'London' being an iron ship- prevented what might have been a successful second attempt to save a few more lives. The nineteen survivors, in their little life boat, were driven before the gale in the Bay of Biscay all that Thursday afternoon, and evening, and night, tossed on the back of tremendous seas, and when daylight on Friday morning came there was still no rescue, nor much hope of living out the gale. At about eleven a.m. on Friday, the 12th, however, a vessel hove in sight, and the attention of it's crew being attracted to the boat were picked up, after twenty hours' exposure to the pitiless winds and waves.

The vessel proved to be the 'Marianople', Captain Carasa, an Italian barque, on board which the survivors received the utmost attention and kindness, and from which they were put ashore at Falmouth yesterday afternoon, the chief engineer and three passengers at once proceeded on to London by the small train.

Some hair-breadth escapes in connection with this disaster are already known. A lady who was desirous of proceeding from Plymouth with her family to Melbourne by the 'London' had made repeated pressing applications to the owners agents at Plymouth, and the captain had been consulted, but, fortunately for the applicant, had declared that his cabins were so full that he could not possibly accommodate her, a result that, at that time, caused her much disappointment. A second-class male passenger was so alarmed at the rough weather which the 'London' encountered on her way down to Plymouth, that immediately on her arrival to that port he came ashore, resigned his passage, and went back to his home, thus unwittingly saving his life. A young man, as the result of some family quarrel, left his home, and took a passage by the London. He was advertised for the times, and importuned to return, his friends being unaware of his whereabouts. Messengers were sent down to Plymouth , and an influential shipbroker in the town was employed to intercept him should he attempt to sail thence. Fortunately he was detected amongst the passengers of the London, and his family communicated with by the broker, the result of which that a brother of the young man came down to Plymouth, and persuaded the would-be emigrant to forego his voyage.

The sudden death of Mrs Andrew Nelson caused much sympathy to be expressed by the residents. The lady was down shopping on Monday week, apparently in her usual health, but was suddenly seized with pains in the neck and back on Wednesday, after which she rapidly grew worse. Dr Sully was in constant attendance up to the time of her death, which took place on Friday last.
Her remains were interred in the Church of England portion of Riverstone General Cemetery on Saturday, and hers was the first funeral conducted there.
A benefit concert in aid of the Nelson family will be held in the Temperance Hall on Saturday, 12th inst. The case is a most deserving one, and should be patronised by all. Mr Nelson has always been known to be an honest industious person, and has had a large family to provide for. The death of Mrs Nelson, his wife, comes with a great blow to the home. It should also be mentioned that Mr Nelson has always been willing to assist in similar movements - that is, as far as circumstances would permit. Mr W Morgan, MP, has already given a contribution and has promised to sing at the concert

The Yass Courier says :-It is with much regret we record the death by drowning, of an interesting child, five years old, the son of Mr. Jeremiah Crossley, of Wargiela. It appears that on the morning of Friday, the 23rd instant, the child accompanied his sister, who is about seven years old, to head some cows, and turn them in the direction of the house. The head of the Burrowa River is in the vicinty of tho house, and the little fellow sat down at the side of the water, where his sister left him for a few minutes. On her return she saw his body floating in the river and at once ran and acquainted her mother; --Mr. Crossley being from home at the time. The anxious parent on reaching the river, found that the body had sunk; several neighbours were shortly afterwards on the spot, but the body was not recovered for some hours.  
Crossley, Uriah (I877)

There died in Clyde on Friday morning last, one of the institutions of the district in the person of Mrs Susan Asquith, the mother of Mrs Gye of Clyde. The old lady who was in her one hundred and second year first saw the light in Bristol City (England), on the 29 May 1801 and eventually found her way to Hobart where she met her husband. Victoria was her next dwelling place and there her husband died. At the ripe old age of eighty-four granny essayed the long journey "by her lone" and just a trifle over seventeen years ago she reached Clyde, where she remained until her death, attended by her daughter and grandchildren. She had in all 22 children, 17 of who still live, her eldest son is 79 years, and her grandmother lived to 102 years. For the past 12 months, the old lady has been confined to her bed, her strength finally waned, until the end came. The funeral on Sunday was largely attended. Mr Mackie officiating at the grave

Mr. Gordon Mote, Yass modern home furnisher, recently uncovered a 1928 edition of the 'Yass Tribune' when he took up some linoleum. In the paper he read a par concerning Mr. W. E. James, ex- Yass motor cyclist and ace racing car driver, who is now a director of Wollongong and South Coast Aviation Services and managing-director of Ronald Mackellar Pty. Ltd., Wollongong. The paper described how Wally James, the youth, went up Yass' steep cemetery hill road at 72 m.p.h. on a Harley Davidson. Commented a recent edition of the 'Tribune': 'That was 18 years ago . . . and, unlike a lot of other folk, James went up the cemetery hill and came down again."

Mr. Herb. Loiterton, of Stockinbingal

The above well-known and esteemed farmer and grazier, of 'Kyra,' two miles out from Stockinbingal, was found dead, at 6 o'clock on Tuesday morning, down at the creek near the homestead, with a No. 303 rifle alongside the body. The top of the head was shattered.

The ambulancc was called, and con veyed the body to the morgue at the Cootamundra District Hospital. It is believed that the shooting occurred about two hours previously. Mr. Loiterton, who is reported as being in very comfortable circumstances, was suffering from nerves, and imagining that everything was going into reverse. For a while he was in Cootamundra, staying with his aged mother, in Sutton street, widow of the late John Loiterton, of 'Mount Hope,' Stockinbingal. He returned home for Christmastide, and began worrying because the wheat had not turned out quite so well as usual.

It was planned that he and Mrs. Loiterton would go away on a car holiday, leaving this week, hoping that it would give the needed recuperation; but, sadly for all, came the tragic climax.

There are three daughters and a son. The latter, the youngest, is 12. In order of age they are Una, Elva, Alma, and Wallace. Two of the daughters were ill when the tragedy occurred, and Mrs. Loiterton, sen., was very ill.

Deceased was 53; and brothers and sisters are Allan Loiterton, Temora; Walter, Pucawan; Lou, Temora; Har rold, Cootamundra; Ellen (Mrs. Frank Corby), Stockinbingal; Eileen (Mrs. H. Pengilly), Goolagong; Elsie (Mrs. Albie Ball), of Ashfleld, late of Stockin bingal; Milicent (Mrs. Don Dickson), Cootamundra; and Doris (Mrs. San derson), Katoomba.

A native of the district, and a link with its earliest pioneers, whose descendants are numerous about here, deceased married Miss Harris, of Cul linga, whose sisters and brothers are Lou (Mrs. R. Penfold), Quandialla; Ada (Mrs. H. J. Pollard), Cootamun dra; Linda (Mrs; H. J. McGregor), Dulwich Hill; and Jack and Walter, of Wagga; George, Wallendbeen; and Arthur, Queensland.

The funeral left the Anglican Church, Stockinbingal, after a short service, at 11 on Wednesday morning, for the Stockinbingal cemetery.

In the absence of the Rev. Canon J. Done, his asistant, Mr. Thomas, officiated, and there was a large and representative gathering.

An inquest is to be conducted at the Cootamundra Court House next Tuesday.

We are indebted to Dr. S. Livingstone Spencer for the following appreciation of the late Dr. Stanley George Bradfield.

Stanley George Bradfield was killed in an accident on August 12, 1951. He had taken a tree-felling expert to his holiday property at Stanwell Park in order to dispose of a tree which endangered a neighbour's home. A rope which was being used fouled a second tree, and then whipped with tremendous force against Bradfield's chest, breaking his ribs and causing intrathoracic injuries which were immediately fatal.
Stan Bradfield was born at Gordon in New South Wales in 1906, and came of a distinguished family. His father was the late Dr J J C Bradfield, for many years chief engineer for metropolitan railway construction, and designer of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. His mother, sister and four brothers survive him including Dr. E. V. Bradfield formerly of Belmont and now practicing in Arncliffe, Sydney. He was educated at the Sydney Church of England Grammar School, and passed the leaving certificate examination with first class honours in mathematics and physics, going on to receive his undergraduate education at the University of Sydney. Always near the top of his year, he won the Parkinson Memorial Prize for pathology and bacteriology, and graduated in 1930 with first class honours. During the last three years of his medical course he was a member of Saint Paul's College.
He was appointed to the resident medical staff of the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, and after terms in residence at the Royal South Sydney Hospital, the Women's Hospital, Crown Street, and the Royal Alexandra Hospital for Children, he went abroad for post-graduate study, and remained in England from 1933 to 1935, gaining further experience as resident medical officer at the Stockton and Thornaby District Hospital and at the Hampstead Children's Hospital. During this period, also, he passed the examination for membership of the Royal College of Physicians, London. Later, in 1938, he became a foundation member of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians.
On his return to Sydney in 1935, Bradfield commenced in general practice at Bankstown, a suburb of Sydney, in succession to the late Dr. E. M. Goard. Here, by his ability, his boundless energy and his conscientious devotion to his calling, he attracted a wide circle of patients, who were also his friends. Always a lover of children, he gave more and more attention to paediatrics, and in 1950 he entirely relinquished the care of his adult patients to Dr. Colin Ratcliff and from then on restricted his practice to the treatment of sick children, whom he saw at Bankstown and in his rooms in Macquarie Street, Sydney. He had been a member of the honorary medical staff of the Royal Alexandra Hospital for Children since 1936, and an honorary physician since 1949. He had also served the hospital for two years as secretary to the honorary medical staff, and had been a tutor in paediatrics in the University of Sydney. In 1949, when the Government of New South Wales set up a panel of consultants who might be called to examine patients suspected of having anterior poliomyelitis, Bradfield was one of the two nominees of the Royal Alexandria Hospital for Children. He attended the Australasian Medical Congress (British Medical Association) in Brisbane in 1950, and the inaugural meeting of the Paediatric Association of Australia, of which he was a foundation member. On seceral occasions he lectured on child health for the Post-Graduate Committee in Medecine in the University of Sydney. In 1941 Bradfield went overseas with the 2/12 Australian General Hospital, and soon rose to the rank of major, returning to practice in 1944.
In 1935 Stan Bradfield married Miss Enid Alt, also of Gordon. Only a few months before his untimely death he had acquired a beautiful home in this suburb, and was looking forward to the full indulgence of one of his keenest interests, that of gardening. His love of the open air was an expression of his unflagging energy, and his close friends will remember the slender tireless figure which tramped briskly ahead through the bush when his companions would willingly have rested or turned back. The operas of Gilbert and Sullivan formed another interest. Bradfield knew many of the songs by heart, and every Gilbert and Sullivan season saw him prominent in the audience.
Always a devoted husband and father, Stan Bradfield leaves his widow and four young children, two daughters and two sons. He is also mourned by countless patients and friends, who knew him as a fine physician and a staunch comrade. The memory of Stan Bradfield's sincerity and generosity will live on in the hearts of those who knew him together with universal sorrow that he should have been taken from us when he stood on the threshold of a great career.
Dr. Lennox Price writes: Stanley Bradfield's brilliant academic record and his skill as a physician were known by many, but it is of his more personal qualities that I wish to write. Our two families being linked in friendship, it naturally followed, on our return from active service , that our children should be growing up together, and that we should associate more closely. Here it was, within the family circle, that one saw him in his happiest moments for he loved all children, and in his devotion to his own he was, I believe, the ideal parent. Firm when necessary, but always kindly and never patronizing, he seemed naturally to draw children to him; and it was surely fitting that paediatrics should be his chosen specialty. It became necessary to seek his help in the case of one of my own children and I was thus able to appraise at first hand the careful history-taking and meticulous physical examination, followed by the necessary advice, all quietly and without fuss or frill. He possessed no artificial airs and graces, nor did he seem to encourage those who adopted them. The somewhat clipped form of speech gave a first impression of an abrupt manner, but this was mollified by a bubbling sense of humour, which would burst forth at unexpected moments, and one learnt to appreciate the sudden quip, followed by the merry twinkle of the eye which was his characteristic.
Of small stature, he yet possessed an inexhaustible fund of physical and mental energy, and was never idle for a moment. Up with the lark, he would be off on an early morning consultation long before the normal breakfast hour, or when time permitted he might be found energetically tilling his kitchen garden in which he took a pride. Work or the welfare of his patients was his chief concern; but his great delight was to take a brief respite with his children at his holiday retreat at Stanwell Park. Tragically, it was in this manner that he met his death, for while he was felling a tree, no doubt in preparation for summer camps, the fatal accident occurred. Death, we are told, was instantaneous.
Our sympathy goes out to his widow and the four young children whom he left, the oldest a girl aged twelve years and the youngest a baby boy a little over one year old.
Medicine in this generation could ill afford to lose such a man as Stan Bradfield.
Bradfield, Dr. Stanley George (I63)

We regret to record the death of Mr. Matthew Farndale, a very old and respected resident of this district, which took place on Friday last at his residence, Birregurra.

His remains were interred in the Irrewarra cemetery yesterday afternoon in the presence of a large number of friends and acquaintances of the family.
