Submarine Victim.—Among the 110 pasengers [sic] who lost their lives when the Elder Dempster liner "Falaba" was torpedoed by a German submarine off Milford was Mr Evan Rogers Owen, Llys Dorfil, Blaenau Festiniog, a brother of Mr. W. Lloyd Owen, manager of the L. C. and M. Bank (Metropolitan branch), Blaenau Festiniog, Major Owen J.P., of the 7th Territorial Battalion, Royal Welsh Fusiliers, Mr. John Owen of Canada, and Miss K. W. Roberts, B.A., of London. Mr. Evan Rogers Owen was of an exceedingly affable disposition, and his death will be mourned by a large circle of friends. Deep sympathy is felt for the bereaved relatives. The deceased went through a course in agriculture and forestry at the University College of Bangor, and qualified in both subjects. He immediately obtained a Government appointment as assistant superintendent of agriculture in Southern Nigeria, West Africa. He had been in the service three years, and was returning to Nigeria for the third time when he came to so tragic an end.
