Biggleswade Brothers Safe


Friday 9th June 1916: Readers may remember we reported on 13th May that brothers Private Herbert A C Wells and Private Frederick C Wells, of Biggleswade were missing following the attack on 8th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment, on 19th/20th April. Private H A Cartwright Wells has written home to say that he is a prisoner at Darmstadt. We are very glad to know that Herbert, like his brother, is safe and we trust that in due course these Biggleswade soldier brothers will return to their parents at West’s Yard, Biggleswade.
