John Cock, Charlie's uncle living in England.
I am writing to ask if you can give any information re the death of Pte C.D. Harris 33719 13th Com C.I.B N.Z.E.F as he is a nephew of mine. I shall be so grateful to receive any particulars concerning him.
Thanking you in anticipation.
To Mr J. Cock
Your nephew PrivateHarris was killed on October 4th by shell fire, he was a stretcher bearer and at time of his decease was with our Battalion Chaplain and other stretcher bearers, all of whom were killed.
He was buried by the Wellington Battalion Chaplain on Abraham Heights. His comrades in his platoon speak very highly of him and he was killed while doing his duty.
Please accept my sympathies.
O.C. XIII Rgmt
