  • Newspaper article: More Local Casualties (Pte. Alfred Thompson and Sgt. William Walter Stephen).[2]
  • Lance Sergeant Mitchison writes to the Workington Star and Harrington Guardian:
    Dear Mr. Star Man, A line to say I have received two parcels, one belonging to Corporal White and the other Private Copeland. Both are in hospital, so I divided the contents between the men in the Platoon, and I can tell you they all enjoyed them immensely. We all send our deepest sympathy to Private Copeland, as he has lost a brother killed while he has been in hospital. All the boys wish the Star Fund much success, which it certainly deserves.[3]
