Report in the Whitchurch Herald 30th June 1917 of a letter received by Mrs Chase regarding her husband, Edwin Chase
"All the officers and men of his Battalion send you their deepest sympathy. They recognise that they had lost a good and faithful soldier, I feel very sorry to think that so many of our good healthy lads are being taken away from us in this way. We must try and look at it from the point of view of the cause we are upholding. Your husband did his best to help his country and fellow men. His grave is in a nice cemetery and a little cross is being erected to indicate the place of rest. Private Chase was killed instantly. He leaves a widow and three children
Rev. Morris, Chaplain, RWF"
