Mrs H Jinks, of 14 Waterside, Evesham, has received official notification from the War Office that her son by a first marriage, Corporal Norman Hall, was wounded while on active service last month.

Corporal Hall, who is 21, was born at Badsey and he attended Cleeve Prior C of E School.  He was also a member of the choir at Cleeve Prior Church.  When quite a small boy he made up his mind to embark on a military career and, two years before the war, he joined the 9th Lancers.

He went to France in 1940 and was wounded at Abbeville in June of the same year.  He was among those evacuated from Dunkirk.
