You will be sorry to hear that Private H Rhodes, 1/5th West Yorks was wounded in the right shoulder on the 4th November. He is now at the 1st Canadian Hospital.

His parents, Mr and Mrs Charles Rhodes, write me as follows : "Will you allow me to thank you for the kind letter you sent to Arthur Draper and Harry (through your paper) in regard to their late, dear friend (Percy Smith). You will pleased to know that Harry wrote to Mr Smith previous to being wounded. This is the second time he has been wounded. Again thanking you, Yours truly, C Henry Rhodes and B Rhodes"
