After spending a considerable time in the city, the homeland called and he paid a visit to his people in England. Back again in Australia, he associated himself with a well-known city firm of watchmakers and jewellers, and in later years he came to Mudgee and acquired a mixed business at the corner of Lewis and Denison streets.

Some ten years ago his worthy wife was appointed librarian at the Mechanics' Institute, and he assisted her in the management up till his last il ness. A great lover of music, he was for many years a valued member of the Mudgee Methodist choir, and he will he sorely missed by that organisation. Altogether, the late George Dimmock was a very fine character, and his passing will be deeply deplored by a wide circle of devoted friends. He is survived by a widow, two| sons and one daughter. Both, boys are in the forces. Albert, a flight control officer in the R.A.A.F., is . stationed at Richmond, while Dudley has been in New Guinea for some time.

The funeral will take place from the Methodist Church at 11 o'clock to morrow (Friday) morning, Mr.- H. Barton being in charge of the arrangements.
