I knowwhat you mean Ken, sadly it's the same for many towns and villages across the country.

On behalf of myself and the officers of the 1/3rd battn, The Kings African Rifles, I would take this opportunity of expressing our deep sympathy with you in your very great loss. Although your son had only been with us such a very short time he took a keen interest in his work, and by his death I am sure the Kings African Rifles have lost a very valuable and gallant officer'
