Mr J Sladden, of Badsey, has received a notification from the War Office that his youngest son, Lieutenant Cyril E Sladden, of the 9th Worcesters was wounded on August 12 in the Gallipoli Peninsula. The battalion got into action about a month ago and from the heavy casualties already reported among the officers has evidently experienced some severe fighting. The casualties among the rank and file are not yet published.
