Wounded soldier turned tram driver

Henry Stephen Tuttle of Sulhamstead was one of the first local soldiers to return sufficiently disabled to have his post-war career affected.

THE WAR

We are pleased to hear that Henry Stephen Tuttle, who name has figured in our Intercessions amongst the wounded for many Sundays, has now sufficiently recovered to leave his hospital. He has courageously accepted a post as a driver of a London tram. He is not well enough to undertake the walking that is required for a tram conductor. This family has given four brothers to the war.

We hear that a cricket match has been arranged between the soldiers at Sulhamstead Home and those at Englefield and is to be played at Englefield, after this has gone to press, on July 17th.
