A life of great promise and great bravery

The vicar of Reading St Giles offered his sympathy to the mayor of Reading in his bereavement.

Notes from the Vicar

Our sympathy and prayers, individually and as a parish, have I am sure, been given to the Mayor of Reading in the great loss he has sustained in the death of his son Lieut. E. Sutton at the front.

Lieut. Sutton had won great distinction during the war and his had been a life of great promise as well of great bravery. We may well believe that those activities which he showed on earth are still being used in Paradise.
