A keen, capable and excellent soldier

One of Cookham Dean’s soldiers was killed during the Battle of the Somme.

Roll of Honour.

We sincerely regret to have to record the death of Sergt. Victor Page (Royal Warwickshire Regt.) killed in action on July 16th. As a boy he was for some years a member of the choir. He enlisted directly the War broke out, and in a very short time proved himself to be a keen, capable and excellent soldier, and was very soon promoted to the rank of Sergeant. He met a soldier’s death fighting for his country and for those dear to him. Our sincere sympathies are with his parents, for so many years regular members of or Congregation.
