The death occurred at Newcastle on Saturday of Major Edward Windeyer, youngest son of the late Sir William Windeyer and brother of Mr. Richard Windeyer, K.C, and Mr. William Archibald Windeyer.

In the South African War he served with the Mounted Rifles. In the last war he was a major in the 7th Light Horse and was temporarily in command of the unit at Gallipoli. He was second in command at Roumani. He is survived by Mrs. Windeyer, who was formerly Miss Daisy Holden, daughter of a solicitor at Maitland, and by three sons, all of whom are on military service. The funeral will take place to-day at Raymond Terrace.
