Obituary, Jewish Chronicle

HYAMS – Yet another instance of a gallant young coreligionist who has made the great sacrifice is Pte. Philip Hyams, who joined the 2nd South African Infantry at the age of seventeen. His family migrated to Durban, South Africa, some fifteen years ago, and at the outbreak of hostilities this mere lad bravely answered the call of the Mother Country. He came over to England about eighteen months ago to complete his training, was sent to France in March 1917, and was killed in action on Yom Kippur day. Much sympathy is felt with his parents abroad in their loss of a devoted son, and with his grandparents, Mr and Mrs. Philip Whyl, of Highbury – From Mr SAMUEL JACOBS.
