Other Info: The text of the article reads: “We received the above portraits on Friday, and with them the following letter:- “Guernsey”, Vale Road, St Leonards. Dear Sir, I enclose two photographs if you care to publish them in this week’s Pictorial, one of myself and one of my brother, who is in a football jersey, is a Private in the 2nd Dorset Regiment, and has been taken prisoner with General Townshend’s Force in Kut-el-Amara. He went through all the campaign, and was wounded at Christmas fighting near Baghdad. No news has been heard from him since December, although we believe he is quite safe. He was in Parr’s Bank, Hastings in 1912, and then left for their Bournemouth Branch, and was in the local YMCA football team. The other photograph is of myself, and tomorrow I am leaving to join my Regiment, the London Scottish, so hope to fill his place now he is handicapped for the duration of the war. I am only 18, am also at Parr’s Bank, Hastings.
