His parents have received the following message from Second Lt G.Ducker:

“It is with the deepest regret that I confirm what probably has been conveyed to you officially already, the news of the death of your dear son, who died of wounds received in action during the glorious attack made by this company last week.

Sgt. Kay was a most promising, intelligent N.C.O., and I looked to him as one of the mainstays of the Company. His officer and the men under his charge had a great personal regard for him.”-
