HUNTINGDONSHIRE SOLDIERS' CASUALTIES
Chief Constable's Office, Huntingdon, 6th June, 1916. 
The Editor 'St. Neots Advertiser'   

Sir,  The enclosed Return of Casualties of Huntingdonshire men since the commencement of hostilities.  The heavy list of casualties should bring home to all the seriousness of the conflict.  It is satisfactory, however, to note the small number of our County men who have been taken prisoner.  I shall hope to be able to amend the list from time to time.  Yours faithfully, Alan Chichester, Lieut. - Col. Chief Constable of Hunts.
