Home front
About 11pm on Friday night,  Private William Carveth of 3/6th Gloucesters was crossing the line at the south end of Great Malvern station when he was knocked down by a goods train which was proceeding towards Worcester, his left shoulder and left knee being badly injured. He was taken to the Malvern hospital by his comrade Private Osier, but his injuries resulted in his death at 5am this morning. The Battalion to which the deceased belonged is encamped on Malvern Common above the railway line.

Worcester Hop Market
There was a fair attendance today, but the market was lifeless and the trade again practically nil. Planters are holding out for prices beyond the ideas of the merchants who in the present unsettle stated of the brewing trade consequent on the wholesale extension of closing orders are exercising special caution.

Angling has not been good this week. The rivers are low and the water is stale and only in the early morning and evenings has sport been fair.

Worcester Library and Museum Committee
The committee decided to send old or duplicate copies of books though the Post Office to the Army and Navy. The Librarian said he had already sent some to the Australian troops and other for general distribution.
