Report in the Whitchurch Herald 22nd September 1917 of the death of Leonard Wilson

"The sad news was received on Wednesday afternoon that Drummer Wilson had died in Wharncliffe War Hospital, Sheffield, after undergoing surgery to amputate a leg. He was wounded in the leg when on active service in France, and had been in Hospital for four months, and up to Monday was apparently recovering and looking forward, as he wrote to friend, coming home to Whitchurch. Unfortunately his wound made an operation necessary. This took place on Tuesday under general anaesthetic when he passed away. He was a brilliant pianist and was ever ready to give his services to any good cause while stationed at Prees Heath Camp in the band of the Liverpool Regiment. He married Miss Martha Jane Owen, late of the Star Hotel in 1916, for whom the deepest sympathy is felt in the loss of her husband."
