Clarke Horace Edwin

The deepest sympathy has been expressed for Col. Sgt Thomas Clarke and Mrs Clarke13. Ulster Road Bowerham, in the severe loss they have sustained by the death in action of their devoted son, Pte Horace Edwin Clarke, of the Border Regiment. The sad news came through a comrade, Pte R )\Southward, who joined with him, and had a furlough at the same time last Christmas.In a letter dated 13th July Pte Southward stated 'I am very sorry indeed to have to write to you of the death of your son Horace who was killed on July 9th by a shell along with four others. He could not possibly have suffered at all, as he died instantaneously. 1 am sure no one will miss him more than 1 will, as we have stuck so well together since our enlistment. We stuck together up to the last. Even then 1 did not leave him until we had buried him in a pretty little cemetery just behind the lines at Fricourt. 1 hope the knowledge of this win ease somewhat the sorrow you will feel in the loss of your son which 1 myself share through the loss of a comrade. He was a brave soldier and always did his duty well. He is sadly missed by all at Brigade

Headquarters ' All here join in deepest sympathy' -both Clarke and Southward were cycle orderlies.

EAST MUDROS MILITARY CEMETERY, Ref:III. B. 56., Lemnos, Greece

Because of its position, the island of Lemnos played an important part in the campaigns against Turkey during the First World War. It was occupied by a force of marines on 23 February 1915 in preparation for the military attack on Gallipoli, and Mudros became a considerable Allied camp. The 1st and 3rd Canadian Stationary Hospitals, the 3rd Australian General Hospital and other medical units were stationed on both sides of Mudros bay and a considerable Egyptian Labour Corps detachment was employed. After the evacuation of Gallipoli, a garrison remained on the island and the 1st Royal Naval Brigade was on Lemnos, Imbros and Tenedos for the first few months of 1916. On 30 October 1918, the Armistice between the Entente Powers and Turkey was signed at Mudros. East Mudros Military Cemetery was begun in April 1915 and used until September 1919. It contains 885 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, 86 of them unidentified, and one Second World War burial. There are also seven non war naval graves and 32 burials of other nationalities in the cemetery, 29 of them Russians who died in the evacuation of Novorossisk in 1921, who are remembered on a memorial plaque set into the boundary wall.
