Letter to parents from Acting Director of Medical Services of the Hampshire Regiment - Maj. J. G. Bell

On the 6th of this month of the brigade in which his regiment belonged became engaged and suffered severe casualties. He worked splendidly behind the firing line all that afternoon and all night getting back the wounded, dressing and attending to them. At about 6.30 on the morning of the 7th when his work was practically over and he was standing wit another officer a Turkish shrapnel shell fell close to him killing him dead together with five other men. He was buried where he fell, next to a captain of the Hants, with two officers of the Essex Regt. close by. He is buried in an open mullah. I saw his grave this morning, a suitable cross is being put up this afternoon by the regt. Your son's death is a great loss: he took great interest in his work, and was keen about it, and had done well.
