To Italy.

Mr. and Mrs. J. Earnshaw, of the Red House, Old Denaby, are leaving to-day (Friday) to fly to Italy under the new scheme which enables parents to visit the graves of sons who were killed in action abroad.

They are to go to Assissi to see the grave of their son, Trooper Edward Earnshaw, who was killed in action at the age of 20 in 1944.

In 1946 Mr. and Mrs. Earnshaw also lost another son, Petty-Officer George Earnshaw, who died through war service in the Royal Infirmary, Doncaster.
