The funeral of Captain E Cuthbert Ll Pickard, only son of Mr and Mrs T W Pickard of Glynde, took place at Glynde yesterday afternoon. Deceased, who was only 29 years of age, belonged to the 63rd Field Company, East Anglian Brigade, RE, with which he had been for about three years. He passed away in Norwich War Hospital as the result of double pneumonia, and his death caused the greatest regret among all his comrades. Always of a kind and considerate disposition, Captain Pickard was beloved of his men, and he leaves behind him a good name. In Glynde he was always popular, and the little village feels his death most keenly. He was a sportsman in the best sense of the word.
