Sudden Death of a Constable.
Yesterday morning Superintendant Arthur received word by telephone that Constable Smith, of Euroa,had died suddenly at half past 6 that morning. He was on duty on Sunday, but was taken ill during the night and a medical man was called in, but it was too late to render any effective assistance. Constable Smith, who is married, has been stationed at Euroa for upwards of four years. He was very popular, and at the same time stood very high in the estimation of his superior officers.
Excerpt from Benalla Standard (Vic.), 8 February 1921.
