2 July 1943
The village of Borve was deeply grieved by the news of the death of Sgt. Norman Saunders, Seaforths Highlanders, youngest of the seven sons of Mr and Mrs Roderick Saunders, 30 Borve. During the battle of the Mareth Line, he was fatally wounded by shrapnel. He would have been 26 years on 13th April. Joining the army at the age of 18, he proved a staunch and energetic soldier right to the end. The heartfelt sympathy of the community is extended to the griefstricken parents, sisters and brothers.
