Lieutenant W White [X550/1/81]

Monday 27th March 1916: Sickness is running through the 2nd Battalion at the moment. We heard yesterday how 25 men had gone sick last week. Today an officer, Lieutenant W White(1) has also had to report sick. At the end of a long, hard, snowy winter the men’s health is not likely to be at its best. Let us hope for a warm, dry Spring for them
