Letter to Alf Smith’s Parents 28 May 1918




Dear Madam,

I am in receipt of your letter dated 17th inst. but regret to say that I am unable to give you any further information regarding Pte A.A. Smith.

The only information I have is that he went into action on 21st March last & was afterwards reported as missing.  I am sorry to say nothing more of him has been heard but it is quite possible that he was taken prisoner of war.

Trusting this will relieve your anxious time.


I remain

Yours sincerely

M Wood Capt
