TULLY. Oct 12. "There is, I feel, a thin veil dividing us from those brave lads who fought and fell over the other side, and I would like all present tonight whenever they cross the threshold of this hall, to remember those brave men and all they did for their country," said Mr. Thomas Briggs (Secretary of the Tully branch of the R.S.S.I.L.A) in dedicating the soldiers memorial hall at EI Arish last night.
