"Mr George Swindle
We regret to have to announce the death in Sydney on Tuesday last, of Mr George Swindle, eldest son of Mr and Mrs John Swindle, of Bangaroo, from pneumonic influenza. The late Mr Swindle was well known in this district some years ago. Recently he was farming in the Gunnedah district and later still dairy-farming on the Hunter River. Some little time ago he removed to to Sydney, and engaged in business in Stanmore. Mt Swindle, senr., had no knowledge that his son was ill until the word came of his death.

The deceased gentleman was 42 years of age, and leaves one son by his first wife. He was twice married.

General sympathy will be felt for the bereaved ones, especially the father and mother, who are faced with so sudden a bereavement."
