Newspaper Mentions:
Grantham Journal Saturday 25th November 1916.
Pte H Cooper, of the Lincolns, writing to Mr. J. J. Davies early in November, say: This afternoon Harry Teat and comrades from Rippingale, Deeping and Easton, were talking about you and about dear old Bourne, and we thought you would like to know the boys of “the old brigade” are still alive and well and going strong. There are a few more Bourne boys round here, but we haven’t come across them yet. But we hope to. And we hope there will come the time when we shall all meet together again in Bourne. I am pleased to tell you that Fred Hinson and A Carter are quite well and wish to be remembered to you and also to the boys at Bourne. We have has some rough weather out here, raining practically all the day. Today it is a bit better. We are glad to hear that young Kelby has been presented with the D.C.M. at Bourne and we hope he will enjoy good luck to live long and wear it. We think there is a silver lining not far away now and we hope to have good luck to land safely back in the old town once again.
