Lance-Sergeant William Irving


A letter to Lance-Sergeant Irving's wife, from Major Roseveare. It reads: "Dear Mrs Irving, Just a short note to say how delighted I am that he has been awarded the MM. You can be very proud of him indeed because you could not have a better man in battle than your husband. He has been magnificent from start to finish and a fine example to the rest of his comrades. I hope he is enjoying his well earned leave. Yours Sincerely, JCA Roseveare, Major." Copyright: Matthew Catlow.
