HGW Wood Chaplain Letter

Wood HGW Chaplain Letter

Extract from the letter of a 1/7 Worcester Chaplain who was on leave & out of Italy when Harry was killed & who upon his return wrote this letter



“I knew your son Capt. Wood D.S.O. very well as I was Church of England Chaplain of the 7th Worcesters. He was a great influence for good among both officers & men. I well remember seeing him at the Holy Communion services from time to time. He was one of the men we can ill afford to lose. Quietly, & with great thoroughness he did his work, he never spared himself.
