Private Osgathorpe, son of Mr and Mrs. Chas. Osguthorpe, Dearne road, Bolton on Dearne, is in hospital in Birkenhead with a severe gunshot wound in the leg.

He is 20 years of age, and has been serving about two years. Before enlistment he was employed at the Wath Main Colliery, where his father is a deputy. He was hit near Roye on August 10, during a five-mile “push,” the battalion fighting every yard of the way.

He received his wound as the battalion was being relieved.
