I’ve received positive feedback from yesterday’s blog post and so I’ve added a Flickr set that includes the Nov. 14, 1914 issue of Bristol & the War.
Vol. 1 No. 4 is twelve pages long and begins with an interesting editorial that concedes the war “may run its dreadful course for many weary months – perhaps even a year or two”. It also includes stories on The Black Watch, Gloucester R.F.A., Bristol “Motor” Ambulance, 3rd South Midlands Field Ambulance and an expanded “Bristolians on Active Service” section. The soldiers mentioned are:
Pte H. W. Hughes (5th Dragoon Guards), AB Gilbert Stanley Mitchell (Naval Brigade, Benbow Battalion), Gnr E. Rowley, Pte J. Appleton (Somerset Light Infantry), Bugler H. G. Gold (RNVR), F. E. Nunn & G. G. Adams & F. W. Hill (3rd South Midland Field Ambulance), Privates Tom Langdon & George Saunders & Jack Corrigan & Mike Scott (Somerset Light Infantry), Pte J. Ogden (3rd Gloucesters), AB H. E. Bray (RNVR), Gnr E. Tyler (1st Div, Sec A.C., 1st Army Corps), AB Ernest F Webb (RNVR), Cpl Bert Kempster (RHA), PO R H Quick (RNVR).
