He was admitted to Hospital seriously ill on June 10th; an operation was immediately performed with success and for two days he held his own. But a relapse came, a second operation was deemed necessary, but in spite of medical skill and attention the patient passed away
Everything that medical skill could devise combined with careful nursing was given to your son, but in spite of it all he passed away. We have buried him in a Military Cemetery, near Bapaume "
