Dear Mrs Hill
It is with the deepest regret that I write to you about the death of your Son Sgt Hill – I had not known him long but I cannot find words to tell you how sadly he is universally missed – he did his job with great courage & even after being so seriously wounded insisted that his job should be carried out before he himself was attended to – he died a few days ago in the Casualty Clearing Station a few hundred yards from here and is buried close by with many more of his comrades – I have thought you would perhaps like to know that the Company have placed a very neat Cross over the grave which is suitably inscribed –
Please accept my very deepest Sympathy in the great loss that you have
