From the Grantham Journal


The war is depleting the village of most of its young men. Three young fellows joined the colours this week, namely, Wm Bates, Chas Pickering and A Key. There are only a few now who have not recognised their duty to the women and children, as well as their King and country.

Today we learn of the sad death of Herbert Edward Batterham  who died today serving his country with the 4th battalion Lincolnshire Regiment. Our sympathies go out to his parents Edward and Emma Betterham of 10 Dyke near Bourne.

He will be missed by all, his sacrifice will not be forgotten.
