Mr. James Albert Carson, first-class stoker on the destroyer Tipperary, who lost his life in the great naval action off the Danish coast last week. On the outbreak of war he was working at Messrs Major's in Aire-Street, when he was called up with the Fleet Reserve. He took part in the defence operations when a German squadron bombarded Scarborough and West Hartlepool in December, 1914. Born in Liverpool, he had lived in this country since his marriage, and leaves a widow and one child to mourn his loss. He was only 26 years of age.
