Western Gazette – Friday 14 July 1916


Last week Mrs. W. J. Charles, of 14, West Lulworth, was notified from the War Office that her husband, Corporal W. J. Charles, having been missing, and of whom there had been no news since August 10th, 1915, the Army Council very reluctantly came to the conclusion that he had died on that day or since. Corporal Charles was the second son of Mr. and Mrs. R. Charles , of 12, West Lulworth. He leaves a widow and one child. A few days before this news reached Mrs. Charles, Mrs. B. Whittle, of Coombe Keynes, received a like intimation concerning her husband, Private B. Whittle, who had been missing since August 21st, 1915, and of whom no news has since been gleaned. Private Bert Whittle was the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. G. Whittle, of 2, West Lulworth. Private Whittle also leaves a widow and one child. Much sympathy is felt throughout the village for both families, who are well-known and respected.
