WORKINGTON MEN KILLED

Lance-Corpl. Alf Sydney, Lonsdales, son of Mr. and Mrs. Sydney, Brown’s Place, reported missing on July 10th, 1917, is now officially presumed to have been killed. A letter from Sergt. C. Snowden, of the Lonsdales, a prisoner in Bavaria, who was in the same platoon, says definitely that he was killed on the morning of the 10th. He sends sympathy and that of his chum, fellow prisoner, Sergt. A.E. Reid, and says deceased was “a good soldier, one of the best, and he died doing his duty.”

Published 11th May 1918, West Cumberland Times
In memory of John Bardgett (15309 L/Cpl.), 11th Border Regiment who died 1st July 1916.
