Transcription of article


Sergeant Amos, for some time headmaster of Badsey Council School, was severely wounded on July 3, and is now an inmate of Leicester Hospital, where he is progressing slowly. Mr Amos married Miss McDonald, of Badsey, and she is now at Leicester with her husband. Mrs Amos’s brother was also wounded in the same charge. It is a somewhat curious coincidence that Sergeant Amos should have been taken to Leicester, of which town he is a native and which he has not visited for a quarter of a century.
