Death of A Lifebrigadesman
We regret to record the death of Mr T. A. Wilson, a prominent member of the South Shields Volunteer Life Brigade. Deceased died on Monody evening, after a week’s indisposition. Mr Wilson had been an untiring member of the brigade from its first establishment, and was much esteemed by the whole of the members. His untiring zeal and devotion to duty, in the self-imposed position of "ships’ husband and steward” to his fellow workers, won for him authority and respect. He was upwards of sixty years of age.
