“You were se very kind in letting me know all Mr Taylor was able to tell me about my son’s death on July 10 … Sergt Taylor … was with my dear son when he died … He could not hear the right address … He added “I must say he was a brave soldier and died a hero” … I think it is so very nice of him to write and I am thankful to know that … Again thanking you for so kindly writing …”
