of Honour. We regret to learn that Mrs Bottomley of Dicq Road, St Lukes has received
a letter from Reverend R T Wearmouth, Chaplain to the Forces Somewhere in France,
to the effect that her son Rifleman Bottomley of the London Rifles died of wounds
and was buried in a little cemetery nearby. A cross bearing his name, regiment
and date of death will be erected and a record kept. The reverend gentleman says
that young Bottomley, whom he saw several times before he died, was quite patient
and trusting in God. Everything possible was done for him but his chest wound
proved fatal. Rifleman Bottomley was formerly employed at the local GPO.
