News has reached Tamworth that Lieut. Col. Rev. Donald Fraser DSO had met with a fatal accident in France, where for the past three years he had been serving as Chaplain to the Forces. Colonel Fraser was returning by motor from the morning church parades last Sunday, when the car in which he was travelling was caught between two lorries, and he was thrown out. Colonel Fraser was Mentioned in Despatches in 1916 and last year received the DSO. He came from Bedford to Tamworth to take over the pastorate of the Baptist Church in November 1906.
Coventry Evening Telegraph 8 June 1918 p.3
