Evening Star – Thursday, 10th June 1915 – IPSWICH SOLDIER KILLED – The parents of Private Walter Juby, of the Bedfordshire Regiment, who reside in Bright Street, Stoke, Ipswich, have received the following letter from Chaplain A.F.G. Fletcher, at the Third Casualty Clearing Station in France: – “I am sorry to say that I have some very sad news for you about your son. He was brought into this clearing station very severely wounded in the head from shrapnel. He was hardly conscious when he arrived, and though everything possible was done for him by both doctors and nurses he passed away on the 5th June. His end was very quiet and peaceful, and I do not think he was in much pain. I buried him in the Military Cemetery, Bailleul, on the 7th. He was laid in grave No. 1,263, and a cross is erected at the head of the grave bearing his name, number, regiment, date of birth, and a record that he died of wounds received in action. This I know will be a sad blow to you, and I pray that God may comfort you.”
