Mrs Ellen Seeley, 11 Shankill Street, has received official intimation that her second son, Private Joseph Seeley, Royal Irish Fusiliers, and a reservist, who had been in the fighting line since the outbreak of hostilities, has died from wounds in a French hospital. He was wounded on two previous occasions. She has also received official intimation that her third son, Private Dennis Seeley, is now in 15th General hospital, Alexandria, suffering from a gunshot wound to the back. He is attached to the Royal Irish Fusiliers, and has been for the past two years on active service in Egypt. Her eldest son, Lance Corporal James Seeley, of the East Lancashire Regiment, has been twice wounded. On the last occasion he lost his left arm, and has been in hospital in England since August last. He was awarded the Military Medal in September 1916. He expects to be home shortly. The youngest boy of the family, Private John Seeley, who was wounded and suffered from shell shock, also some time ago, has been wounded for a second time a few days ago in the left arm, and is now in an English hospital. He has over two years’ service with the colours. Mrs Seeley’s husband and the father of these boys, Private Joseph Seeley, Royal Irish Fusiliers, has been stationed for some time past at Ballymena.
