Is it possible to obtain any information from you concerning my son Pte Joseph Fletcher who was taken prisoner on 21st March 1918. I have received news from him fortnightly until the week before the signing of the Armistice: since I have had no news whatever, and we are very anxious about him.
Yours respectively, Mrs Fletcher
Service with the 1/8th Battalion
Joseph was posted to the 1/8th Battalion on the 29th January 1918, which was holding front line posts near Cambrai when the Germans raided causing several casualties.
