BradleyMr. Bradley, of 31 Annerley Street, Denaby Main, has received an intimation that her husband George H. Bradley. Has been wounded in the Dardanelles.

Writing from the hospital Bradley says: “I am in hospital and they are very good to me. Thank god I have not been killed. I was lucky to get out with a wound. I think I’m going back when I get better but I should long to see you all again. I know you will seen it in the papers how we killed the Turks. I did my little bit.”

Bradley concludes with prophetic message to his wife and children, and hopes to be spared again to return to them and never again to be called away.

Bradly enlisted almost immediately after the outbreak of war in the Royal Navy division.
