"Lieutenant Wilfred Farrar Keay, King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, youngest son of Alderman and Mrs. H.W. Keay, of Elms Meade, Eastbourne, was killed on September 16. He was educated at Eastbourne College, and took up an appointment in the Inland Revenue Land Valuation Department. He received his commission in November, 1914, and was promoted to Lieutenant and adjutant in May last. He had had 12 months' service in France and was present at the battle of Loos.
