Rank: Private

Regiment: Royal Army Medical Corps

Address: Hastings

Other Info: With the above photograph we received the following letter:- “Dear Sir, – I am enclosing a snapshot of four Sussex men out here in Salonkia, and should be very grateful if you could find the space for same in the dear old paper. I have marked myself with  a cross and I might mention that I was a resident in Hastings before the War, and with the late Mr Felton Smith, of High Street, until just before his death. I look back on those times now, and often think what happy days they were; and, when this terrible War is over I am hoping to see Hastings again. In the meantime I am keeping in touch through the medium of your two excellent weekly papers. Wishing you every success…”.
