Report in the Whitchurch Herald 8th March 1918 of a letter received by Mr. and Mrs. Vickers regarding the death of their son, George Edmund Vickers
"Dear Mr Vickers, I was very grieved to hear that your boy had succumbed to his fever. He made a very gallant fight for his life, and shown all the qualities of endurance and cheerfulness which would have meant so much to the Army in France.
I personally greatly regret his passing away and extend to you, and his mother, my sincere sympathy
JD Mayhew (Lt Colonel) RWF"
