“It is with great regret that I have to inform you that a serious accident happened this afternoon to your son. He was asleep with Pte. R Watson, a friend of his in a shelter in our trench, when a shell exploded close to them, and they must have died at once, without knowing anything about it. It has been a great loss, not only to the Platoon, but to the entire company, and to every one of us, it was a terrible grief when what had happened. I went up at once to find out if anyone had been seriously hurt, as I saw the shell come, and then the stretcher bearers. I saw it was fatal when I got there.”
[Worksop Guardian 10 May 1918]
