WOUNDED AND MISSING

Mrs. Akrigg, of King Edward Street, Sutton, has received a letter from her son, Private Albert Akrigg, Norfolk Regiment, stating that he had been wounded by a piece of shrapnel which went in about four inches from the elbow, and came out just a bit below without breaking any bones. Private Akrigg, who is now in the Moor Park Hospital, Preston, prior to enlistment was an apprentice to drawing overlooking at Messrs. T. and M. Bairtow's Sutton Mills. He has been in the Army two years, and went out to France in October last, afterwards being sent to Italy. He returned to France in April this year. He is one of three sons who have done their bit.
