Re. 10607 – Private C. Neill – 1st
Battalion East Kent Regiment.
Your letter dated the 15th inst.
duly received, and the same has been passed to Officer
Commanding Depot, The Buffs, Canterbury, for any action deemed
It has been requested that a careful search
be made through the registers, with a view of discovering a
description of whatever clothes were handed into Stores by your
late son, who did not enlist in March as you state in your
letter. He enlisted on the 15 April 1914.
If your son left his home to join up in
March, and did not enlist until midway through April, it may
well be that the clothes he left home in will not quite
correspond with the description of those handed into Stores.
