John Cochrane    1426   Black Watch

“SLIGHTY WOUNDED AND DOING WELL.”

Private John Cochrane, who resides at 7 Cherryfield Lane, takes a very light view of his wounds.  The only intimation that he has sent home is in the form of a field postcard, stating that he has been admitted to hospital slightly wounded, and is progressing well.

Private Cochrane, who is married, was previously employed in Ashton Works. He was a member of A Company.
