I have the honour to acknowledge receipt of your letter of the 21st ultimo, and in reply I beg to state that the following information was received by cable from England, regarding the casualty to the marginally noted soldier, -
"Reported wounded, remaining at duty, April 9th, 1917, nature of wounds not reported yet."
Should any further information be received Private Stretch you will be immediately advised, but it is quite evident from the foregoing that the wounds were not a serious nature.
I have the honour to be,
Your obedient servant,
Director of Records for a/Adjutant-General
