Roy Kilner Resolution of Sympathy at Darfield Council
A resolution of sympathy with the widow and relatives of the late Roy Kilner was passed at a meeting of the Darfield Urban Council fast night.
The Chairman (Mr. T. H. Foulstone) said Roy Kilner was born in the township of Darfield, and the inhabitants had followed his career with the greatest pride.
Though he gained worldwide fame and popularity, he was one whom honour did not spoil.
The Clerk was instructed to record the resolution the minutes, and the Council stood while the motion, was put.
