Terry, Richard Gordon (1911–1931)

Richard Gordon Terry, 20, of Denistone Station, died from burns received while destroying ant-hills. It is understood that petrol was being sprayed on the beds, when a can became ignited and the wind blew back the flames to Terry's clothes. He was terribly burned before any assistance could be given.
