Lonsdale Battalion events that took place on 13 June.


Dear Sir, Just a line in your most valuable paper which I receive now and again. I am an old Workington lad, and have been out here fourteen months. I happened to come across a Lonsdale Company, which was the Workington Company, and I saw Dick Seymour and Jack Stewart, both my old school chums.
The Lonsdales had to pick a raiding party, which they did, and I think they came off successfully. All the Regiments nearby them gave them credit for their splendid work. Twelve months since I happened to see the 5th Borders near the line and they are also doing great workout here. Our Regiment has had a severe blow at three places. The Lonsdales are now on rest, and are expecting to return to trenches shortly.[2]
