Military Funeral THE LATE PTE. FREEBURN. The second military funeral since the establishment of the Bathurst Military Camp took place to the Church of England portion of the Bathurst General Cemetery yesterday morning. The burial was of the body of the late Private George Freeburn, who died at the Bathurst Hospital at midday on Wednesday, after being only a short period in Camp, and a few days in the hospital suffering from pneumonia. The funeral left Mr. W. Boyds funeral parlor at 11 a.m, and was headed by the recently-formed Camp Band.
The company of which Private Freeburn was a member was in attendance, being in charge of Lieuts. Armstrong and Nelson. The band, which was in charge of Drum-Major J. Regan and Bandmaster Hunter, played the 'Dead March' in Saul throughout the route in a devotional manner. The chief mourners at the graveside were two bers and a sister (Mrs. John Mumford) of the deceased. The bers had journeyed from Rylstone to attend the funeral. Services were held prior to the funeral and at the graveside, and were conducted by Rev. Canon Forster, assisted by Rev. D. Creighton. The pall and coffin bearers were members of the deceased's company. A firing party, under Reg. S.M. Purcell, fired the last salute, and the Last Post was sounded. There was a large attendance of citizens the graveside, where the service was most impressive. Private Freeburn sacrificed a splendid farm at Wagga in order to join the colors.
