Report in the Whitchurch Herald 28th August 1916 on the death of George Percy Burrows

Letter received by Mrs Burrows;

"Dear Mrs Burrows,
Will you kindly accept my sincere sympathy and condolence in the decease of that worthy citizen and heroic soldier your son, Pte. G P Burrows, while one cannot too deeply mourn the loss of such a brave comrade, there is a consolation in knowing that he died doing his duty fearlessly and well, and gave his life for the cause of liberty and up building of the Empire. Again extending to you my heart felt sympathy."
