sturdy example of the old school of English Gentleman, and was a familiar figure in the township. For over fifty years he had been a
trustee og the Hindley Conservative Club and had always taken an active interest in the political life of the township. He attended both

Mr Mort had never been abent at the annual general meeting for a consecutive period of 52 years. He held many offices in the club
and at the time of his death was the oldest director of the Hindley Conservative Building Co Ltd, which had been carried on by his two
