BARNOLDSWICK SOLDIER’S DEATH IN MESOPOTAMIA

The death occurred on August 7th, in Mesopotamia, of Private Edmondson Pickles, Northumberland Fusiliers, from heart failure. The sad news was conveyed in a letter from the War Office to his relatives in Barnoldswick last week end. Private Pickles, who would have been 20 years of age next month, was a son of the late Mr. Edmondson Pickles. He enlisted a year ago, and went out to join the Mesopotamian Expeditionary Force at Basra six weeks before Christmas. In a letter to his sister, received the Thursday before his death, he stated that he was in the best of health, having had a successful recovery from malaria, and that he was expecting being transferred to India in October. His elder brother, Private Jack Pickles, was killed in France in May, 1917.
