Payne WH Father Letter 2

25th Oct. 1921


Dear Mr. Mc. Christison,

In reply to your letter of the 23rd inst. I am sending you a photo of my son which I shall be glad if you will kindly return in due course as it is the only spare copy we have. I regret to say we have not been able to collect any details of his death other than that he was [2] killed in Miraumont on the 19th Oct. 1917 and is buried at Courcelette near Albert. My wife and I have visited the memorial erected at Ovillers and also the grave at Courcelette both of which are very primitive but we understand proper memorials will be erected in due course.

Yours faithfully

W.H. Payne
