WAR: Soldiers faced such a struggle

The War Report about signaller Fred Wilkinson (Morpeth Herald, March 10) reminded me of my great uncle, who was also a signaller in The Border Regiment.

They had to endure a terrible, constant struggle back and forth under fire to convey information to command posts from the front line.

I hope Fred survived the war. Sadly my great uncle was killed in September 1917, aged 23.

God bless them all.
