Report in the Wellington Journal & Shrewsbury News regarding the death of Gerald William Rogers

Commanding Officer writes;

"He was an excellent boy and would have done well in the Army. He was killed by shrapnel whilst the battery was under fire. He has died for his King and Country and I hope you will be proud of him."

Sergeant writes;

"Your son, who was a gunner in my sub-section, he was a good lad and every inch a soldier. I feel it is my duty to write and tell you that he passed away quickly and in no pain, he was buried alongside a comrade who also fell in the same action on the same day "
