WOUNDED On Tuesday Mrs. McKegg, of John-street, received a letter saying her son, Private Robert McKegg, had been wounded on July 1st. It was stated that the wound was not serious – in fact it was a “nice, blighty” one – and that he would soon be home. Yesterday, however, a letter was received from the Chaplain of the Regiment to the effect that Private McKegg had been killed in action. Naturally Mr. and Mrs. McKegg are in an agony of suspense, and are eagerly awaiting further news. Private McKegg, who was 25 years old, was employed by Mr. Ambrose Palmer, and his sunny disposition made him loved by all.
