The Oban Times - - THE GREAT WAR -

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
