Mrs. Sarah Carlton, Ridge Road west, North Grimsby, is in receipt of a letter from His Majesty, The King, conveying to her his sincere condolences on the death of her son, Pte. John A. Carlton, of the R.H. (?) The message is as follows:

Buckingham Palace, The Queen and I offer our heartfelt sympathy in your great sorrow. We pray that your country's gratitude for a life so nobly given in its service may bring you some measure of consolation. Signed "George R.I."

Pte. Carlton was wounded and taken prisoner at Dieppe and later died of his wounds in a German prison hospital.
