Parish Magazine Report

Vol 22, No 8, August 1917 - Private C Knight, of the Worcesters, came home on July 21st, completely incapacitated, for the time being at any rate, partly by the after-effect of wounds received as long ago as January 13th 1916, and partly as a result of his terrible experiences at the front. When he was wounded he had only just recovered from gas-poisoning. He was nursed in the first instance at Boulogne, and afterwards at the Norfolk War Hospital from which he was sent to Sheringham for rest and change. After a few days’ leave in April 1916, he had a relapse and was sent for treatment to the 3rd General Hospital at Wandsworth, where he remained until last month when he was given his discharge to take effect on August 3rd. His health seems to have improved slightly since his return home and we trust he may eventually make a complete recovery. Private Knight volunteered for service in November 1914 but was rejected. A second application in January 1915 was successful and he was sent to the front after two months’ training.
