Report in the Whitchurch Herald 23rd November 1918 regarding the death of Reginald Arthur Trickett

"Guardsman Reginald Arthur Trickett, of the 3rd Grenadiers Guards, the only son of Mr & Mrs Trickett, Belton Road, Whitchurch, owing to uncertainty of his fate his career has not been recorded in these columns. Now the sorrowing parents have been informed by the Army Council that he is believed to be dead, killed in action at Cambrai in November 1917. The deepest sympathy is felt for the bereaved family in the loss and the great suspense which they must have endured in not knowing what really happened to the gallant soldier, who on the 27th November 1917, was last seen wounded and making his way to a dressing station behind the firing line, since then no news of his fate has been obtained. He served 23 months in the Guards; previous to joining the Army Private Trickett was a Tailor, and he had served his apprenticeship with Mr Eaton, of the High Street, Whitchurch, and subsequently worked in Manchester. He was a member of the Whitchurch Congregational Church Choir, and a large circle of local friends, who mourn the loss of a promising young life given at the age of 23 to his King and Country "
