Great sympathy is felt for Mr and Mrs Thomas Mitchell in the loss of their eldest son, Pte Jesse Mitchell, West Yorks Regt. Mrs Mitchell, who lives at 12 Binswell Fold, recently received a letter from a Presbyterian chaplain saying that he was with her son just before he passed away and that he sent this message: β€œI am keeping up as bravely I can.” Then he asked: β€œis there any chance of getting a Blighty just to see my dear mother? She is suffering so terribly.” Pte Mitchell was 22 years of age. Joining up in May 1916, he trained at Blyth and went out the following September. He was wounded in November and returned to the front in March. Contacting septic poisoning soon after his return, he was in hospital for eight months. He was killed on 30th March. His father, Pte T Mitchell, is serving with the R.G.A. Shipley Times & Express 12 April 1918
