OBJECTED TO A HEARSE. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 5 March 1915

OBJECTED TO A HEARSE. "Don't let them take my body to the   cemetery in a hearse—I want the station wagonette to be used; and get   Rheub. Jones to drive the waggon- ette." Such was one of the last wishes   of Mr. Wallace Robinson, late presi- dent of the Gundagai Race Club, and it was carried out on Friday last, when the funeral took place. The coffin was smothered in beautiful wreaths, all the public bodies with which de- ceased had been associated during his lifetime sending artistic sympathetic tokens. As the cortege moved from Abingdon homestead to Nangus C. E. cemetery, it was lengthy, and in the ranks were people from all surround- ing centres—Gundagai, Junee, Coota- mundra, Bethungra, Illabo, Adelong, and Tumut. The funeral service was read by the Rev. H. H. Champion.
