I hope the ASC section commanded by Captain Mantle has got the two large parcels of comforts sent on February 17th. I should be glad to know when they arrived.

Roll of Honour

Captain C A Mantle, ASC (West Riding Divisional Train), elder son of Dr Mantle, Harrogate, was wounded in the leg on Tuesday last by a piece of high explosive shell. His condition is considered favourable. The CO writes : He was carrying out his duty in his usual keen manner, and, in spite of heavy shell fire, continued his way, an excellent example to all his men.

W H Breare letter

Many of you boys know Dr Mantle, of Harrogate, at least by reputation. [Alfred Mantle, MD, physician, 62 York Place] You will be sorry to hear that his son, Captain Mantle, has been wounded, but you will be glad to hear that there is no cause for alarm. Mrs Mantle, the wounded officer's mother, has done a great deal of sympathetic work for boys at the Front. You will hope with me that she will soon have her son home, convalescent.
