Report in the Whitchurch Herald 12th February 1916 on the death of John Newbrook

Letter received by Mr & Mrs Newbrook;

“Your son was killed with others of the regiment in the trenches by a shell which buried him and three other men. I do not think he suffered; his body was carried down by his comrades and buried in a cemetery of soldiers graves. He was one of the best young fellows we had, and we shall feel his loss. I feel how impossible it is to add more, but believe me you have the deepest sympathy of all ranks in my squadron in which your son served”

Captain Hamilton Salter
1st Life Guards
