Private T Armstrong
Making a Name for Himself
Private T Armstrong, resides at 73 Loversall Street, Denaby main, and we are pleased to learn that on the battlefield he has been making a name for himself.
On 19 August, he received the following message from the Major General commanding the division: “your commanding officer and brigade commander of inform me that you distinguish yourself on ninth of August near Hooge. I read their report with much pleasure.)
In the course of a short note form Armstrong writes: “there is plenty of room for the single young men to distinguish themselves out here”.
