On Thursday last we published a letter stating that Gunner
A Le Huquet of 28th Battery RFA son of Mr & Mrs Le
Huquet of 18 Pier Road had been dangerously wounded but
that hopes were still entertained of his recovery. These
hopes unfortunately were not realised and the sad news
of her sons death being communicated yesterday to Mrs
Le Huquet by the following letter from Major K Wilmer
of the Battery. "It is with the greatest regret
that I have to inform you that your son Gunner A Le Huquet
died of wounds received in action. He was wounded on 19th
and died in hospital on 23rd and was buried in the cemetery
of Vieux Chapelle on 24th. I hope you will accept my deepest
sympathy in your sad loss. He was a fine fellow, very
popular and highly thought of by us all in the Battery.
His loss will be felt by all."
