Inquiries for Missing Friends, whether in the Army or Navy, Prisoners of War or Emigrated, will be inserted in the “Oban Times” FREE OF CHARGE. We trust that friends at home may be enabled by these means to get news of their friends lost-sight-of, whether living or dead, located abroad or in other arts of the country.
The war has been the cause of innumerable deaths, and in many cases much property lies waiting to be claimed or must be irretrievably lost. We shall be glad, if, through the medium of the “Oban Times” we are able to restore communications between friends.–Apply directly, or the Editor of the “Oban Times,” Oban
