MARYPORT MEN WOUNDED

A field card from Pvt. R. Semple, Senhouse Street, says he is wounded, but gives no details. Sergt. A. Blezard, Workington, son of Col-Sergt. N. Blezard, who has been recruiting officer at Maryport since the beginning of the war, was wounded in the arm during the first quarter of an hour of the advance on the 1st July. He is now at the Southern General Hospital at Oxford. Sergt. Blezard enlisted in the Lonsdales when they were formed and gained rapid promotion. Private J. McClusky, Whitehaven, a brother-in-law of Sergt. Blezard, was wounded still earlier in the action.
