Letter from Captain W. H. Madden to Elizabeth Morgan: 20th November 1917:
Dear Mrs Morgan, It is with very deep sympathy that I write to you on the death in action of your husband. He was shot through the head and I do not think he suffered, as he never recovered consciousness, and died on the way to the ambulance. Your husband was one of the most esteemed men in the company, both for his kindness and obliging nature and his skill. He is an irreplaceable loss to us. He was buried in a cemetery with reverence, and his Platoon commander saw to all the arrangements. I am very sorry I could not myself attend, but we were still in action. Will you please accept in the name of our company my very deepest sympathy, your husband died doing as he has always done with us, his duty.
Yours sincerely, W. H. Madden, Capt O.C. 3 Coy.
