Lce-Cpl. Dickenson Killed
Lse.-Cpl. William Dickenson (23), Bucks Territorials, whose home is at 15, Ship Road, Linslade, has been killed in action. He was recently wounded about 12 months ago. Recently he went into hospital for illness, and his mother, Mrs. Bacchus, did not know he had returned to the firing line when the news of his death came. He was killed instantaneously, and was buried by his comrades, amongst whom was a son of Mr. Vickers, of Springfields. Lieut. Darby writes that he was a most efficient N. C. O., and was very popular with the ranks. In Linslade he was connected with St. Barnabas' Church as a bellringer and worked for Mr. H. Martin.
