MARYPORT OFFICER WOUNDED

A War Office telegram on Wednesday informed Mr. W.H. Hobson, solicitor and Clerk to the Maryport justices, that his son, Lieut. W. A. Hobson, of the Lonsdales, had been severely wounded by gunshot in the left shoulder. A letter received yesterday (Friday) morning, written by a friend, and signed by Lieut. Hobson with his left hand, says it is his right shoulder which has been injured, the cause being shrapnel. All the fragments have been extracted the wound, and he is making satisfactory progress in hospital. Before receiving his commission in the early days of the war, Lieut. Hobson was a solicitor with his father’s firm, Messrs. Tyson and Hobson, and a keen sportsman.
