Coming Home - Rushden Soldier’s Release from Germany
Mrs. Newman, of 10 Sussex Place, Rushden, learned the happy fact through Wednesday’s “Evening Telegraph” that her husband, a very gallant soldier, had been released from Germany and sent to Holland. Sergeant T.H. Newman, of the Northants Regiment, received 17 wounds about three years ago and was taken prisoner by the Germans. He wrote home regularly, giving information that his legs had been peppered with shrapnel and his face gashed by a shell splinter. He had had several operations, and now the wounds have healed up nicely, and he feels, so he wrote recently, quite well again.
Mrs. Newman had not heard for some time and the bare notice in the “Evening Telegraph” list of his removal to Holland was very glad news indeed. Sergeant Newman joined up in September 1914.
