NEWSPAPER REPORTS

ISLE OF WIGHT MERCURY

Friday, August 18, 1916 Page 5

Sapper H. Wheway, R.E., (brother of Mr. A. Wheway, station master at Wroxall), is lying ill in hospital at Mudros. His father, Mr. W. Wheway, stationmaster at Brading, has been notified by the War Office that he is dangerously ill, but a later letter happily says he is out of danger. He served several months in France before going to Salonica last December. Previous to enlisting he was employed on the I.W. Railway. Another son, King's Sergt. G. Wheway, of the Royal West Kents, is at Sheffield suffering from shrapnel wounds in the left arm and face, which he received in the Delville Wood, where the West Kents were surrounded for 48 hours and fought heroically. He has seen 20 months' service on the Western front and has been in several big engagements. He was made King's sergeant on Hill 60.
