Letters and documents

BX September 12, 1917

Mr. and Mrs. Hannaford of 37 Morrell Street received news that their son, Private William John Churchill Hannaford, is in a hospital at Liverpool, England, with both feet off.

BX June 24, 1918

Returned Saturday

William John Hannaford, 271 West Mill Street, returned to the city Saturday evening. Hannaford lost both legs in the war, and owing to no notice being sent of his arrival, there was no one at the depot to meet him. Fortunately Mr. Tom Kirby was there with his car, and gave the returned hero a lift to his home.
