The war continues to take its toll of Leicestershire sportsmen. During the week news has been received that Pte. F. Bacon, a well-known runner and footballer in the Hinckley district has been killed in action. He was only 19 and a very promising youth. He was the youngest son of Mrs Bacon, widow, of Earl Shilton, whose four soldier sons all met with misfortune during September, two being severely wounded, a third developing fever and the fourth killed.
