Letter from Lance-Corporal Albert H Haughton, 23rd Battalion, Duke of Cambridge's Own (Middlesex Regiment) to his mother, 19 August 1916.

The letter contains mostly personal business, but thanks her for a parcel with cake and the importance of sharing amongst the troops. Haughton was one of 32 soldiers lost in the battalion's first very costly action at Flers-Courcellette on the Somme on 15 September 1916. He is commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial.

From a collection of papers and a photograph relating to F.2364 L/Cpl Albert H Haughton, 23rd Bn, Duke of Cambridge's Own (Middlesex Regiment), 1915-1916.
