"We regret to report the death of Pte. Dick Jeacock, a stretcher-bearer in the O.B.L.I., of Launton, who, as previously reported, was lying in hospital in Leeds suffering from injuries caused by shrapnel to the back and right arm. At the beginning of the week a telegram was received by his wife, which stated that Pte. Jeacock was dead, complications as the result of his wounds having undoubtedly been the cause of his decease.
Pte. Jeacock was about 30 years of age, and leaves a wife and family of young children. He was well known in Bicester, having been a leading member of the Y.M.C.A. Band. He had been in the Army for a considerable period." Bicester Herald 11/08/1916
