Private F Stinchcombe


Harrogate Herald - 29th December 1915

Chats with the Wounded

Private F Stinchcombe, of the 10th Worcesters, is in the Beaulieu Hospital suffering from frostbite. They were in the trenches in the early part of November at Festubert for five days, and they had not only the frost to contend with, but the wet. Not all the troops could be provided with the boots reaching high up the leg, and practically all this time they were standing in mud and water. The feet of Stinchcombe became swollen to such an extent as to break the laces of his boots. He is now doing well. He speaks highly of the treatment the wounded soldiers receive at the Beaulieu Hospital.
