1742. Shaw Redway Strickland

Word was received on Saturday last from Private Shaw Strickland that he was leaving England within the next few days, and returning home to Australia. The Forties soldier was early in the firing line, and not long there before he received a bullet through the shoulder. Since then he has been convalescing in Egypt and England, and it would appear that the wound does not heal, and may take some time more to do so. Shaw will receive a royal reception on his return to his native town.
