"We regret to have to report the death of Mr. W. H. Johns of "Clears" Reigate, which took place rather suddenly on the 9th inst., following an operation. Mr. Johns, who was fifty-four years of age, had for many years past filled the position of manager of the instrument department of Johnson and Philips, of Charlton, with which firm he had been associated practically all his working life, having joined it in 1890 after an apprenticeship served with J. Stone and Co of Deptford."
