    “… you say that you have received information that I knew my brother was killed. “,,, your information is not correct, as unfortunately I cannot discover what happened to him as I cannot find anyone who saw him after I did which was about 10 minutes before we left the trench … I have written home to tell my people all I could, but of course have not received a reply. I would be very grateful if you could continue making all enquiries you can and I would also like you to send me the name of the man that gave you the information, as although he was wrong in thinking I knew of my brother’s death, it is possible that he saw my brother after I did: (Pte C. J Nuttall, 46th Battn. Belgium)
