World War I daily bulletin from the Horsham district

A remarkably positive letter considering what must have been a very painful wound.

“Private William Thomas Rogers, of the West Kent Regiment, recently chauffeur to the Misses Hodgson, of The Causeway [Horsham], sustained a broken thigh and a bad flesh wound in the fighting on the Continent.

“In a recent letter Rogers, who is in hospital in France, states that the doctor tells him he must spend Christmas there but he hopes to be about before then.”
