OBITUARY. CONSTABLE E. H. ALLARD.
On Thursday morning last the sad intelligence was received on the Wallamba that First-class Constable Edward Harold Allard, aged 40 years, had succumbed to that dire malady, typhoid fever, in the Maitland Hospital, where he had been a patient for a fortnight.
Deceased was the second son of Mr. H. F. Allard, of Failford, and joined the force about thirteen years ago, having been stationed for many years at Raymond Terrace and latterly at the West Maitland Court House.
The funeral took place at West Maitland, the remains being interred in the C. of E. portion of the Campbell’s Hill cemetery, when a police funeral was tendered to the departed, thirty-one fellow officers being in procession and four of them conveying the bier to its last resting place. Revs. Woodhouse and Kitley officiated conjointly at the graveside ceremonial and the Oddfellows’ burial service was also read by a fellow member, as deceased was a member of the M.U.I.O.O.F.
The chief mourners were the wife and children of deceased and Mesdames Mead, Codey and Miss Annie Allard (sisters), and Messrs Ernest, Gordon and Morton (brothers) and Messrs R. Mead and A. J. Johnson (brothers-in-law), all of whom had arrived prior to death.
The late Constable Allard was a native of Failford and leaves in sad bereavement his wife and three children – Florence Annie (16), Mona (14), and Reginald (13), an aged father, and brothers and sisters.
A large concourse of friends paid the last sad rites, and sympathy is extended to the bereaved and sorrowing.

FIRST-CLASS CONSTABLE ALLARD
The death occurred in the Maitland Hospital on Thursday from typhoid fever of First-class Constable Edward Harold Allard, who resided at Telarah. Deceased, who was 40 years of age, joined the police force in June, 1916, when he was appointed to Redfern. After six years’ duty, he was transferred to Raymond Terrace, where he remained for a similar term before being removed to West Maitland, nearly two years ago.
He is survived by his wife, two daughter, Florrie and Mona, and one son, Reginald. When the news was received at the West Maitland Police Station, Inspector ( Robert )Graham stated that, apart from the sympathy felt for the deceased officer’s wife and family, he deeply regretted his passing, as it meant the loss of a good man.
