Dear Madam,
Pte. A. Roscoe asked me to write to you if anything happened to him. You will have heard the news of his death by this time. I wish to express on behalf of myself and his comrades our sympathy with you in this loss. He died game. He helped to capture a strong German position on May 24th, but unfortunately got hit while calling for some one to help him bring in a wounded man. We were able to get his body and buried him near a little village called Festubert.

Yours very truly
L.T. Page, Lieut.
