Reference from Brigadier General Pearson

Pte A. Weatherhead served under me for nearly two & half years – for the last eighteen months as my servant. As a soldier he was a splendid example of smartness & cleanliness.  Keen, honest, most energetic, & of perfectly sober habits.  As a servant he was the best I have ever had & I can most strongly recommend as a valet should he care to take up such work.  He is a thoroughly able man & most willing & ernest at all he does.  I recommend him for any position of trust.

Dear Weatherhead,


Thanks for your letter of Oct 27th forwarded home to me.


I was very sorry to miss you & still more so to have left without getting you fixed up with another job. I am at present on leave & do not expect to go abroad yet.  But of course if you do get back I will do all I can to get you, & Morris too, jobs, & if you are still serving – to get you back to me.  I enclose a chit which may be of some use to you.  Let me know how you both get on.


Yrs etc
