 RED CROSS FILES SUMMARY

Reference:-  13 October, 1916 – M. D. Lawrence , Graylingwell War Hospital Chichester, England –

DIED OF WOUNDS-  In reply to your enquiries about No. 858, CPL F. Blythe, 11th Battalion. He was admitted here on July 28th and died on July 30th. He was severely wounded in one shoulder involving the deeper blood vessels, resulting in an Aneurism. The Surgeons considered an operation the only chance of saving his life, but it was found the injury was so severe that it was impossible to do anything for him  and he died very shortly.

I think considering the severity of the injury, CPL Blythe had very little pain, at any rate during the short time  he was with us. He is laid to rest in the Cemetery here, where we have a special ground for the Soldiers- each Grave is marked with a small wooden cross at present, and it is intended later to erect  a Memorial there to all those who have given their lives for King and Country. Perhaps CPL Blythe’s relatives would like to send a small donation towards the Memorial? If so it would be sent to Lt. Colonel Kidd, the officer commanding here. The Graves are cared for by the Staff who often go down to keep them in good order.

I am sorry I cannot tell you more about CPL Blythe , but he was here so short a time. He was quite willing to have  the operation and everything was done  that could be for him “.
