Rushden’s Casualty List - Men Killed, Wounded, and Gassed

Mrs W. Chettle, of 49, Cromwell-road, Rushden, has received a postcard from her son, 203445, Pte. W. Chettle (Duke of Wellington Regiment), who has been missing since April 10th, stating that he is a prisoner of war in Germany and sound.  This is the second son of Mrs Chettle who is a prisoner of war, one other – Pte. Herbert Chettle, of the Northants Regiment – having been wounded and taken prisoner on July 10th, 1917, at the Battle of the Dunes.  Mrs Chettle heard from him a fortnight ago, when he said that he was quite well and was being well treated.  He added that he was going to have his photograph taken and would send his mother one.  Yet another son is serving with the Colours, viz., Gunner Fredk. Chettle, who went to France last Sunday.
