Pte. Walter C. Buckman, jr., 1 Sydenham street, was admitted to a hospital in France on the 19th August for gunshot woulds to the face and shoulders. About three months ago he was gassed, but recovered sufficiently to return to the trenches. His father, Pte. W.C. Buckman, sr., went with the First Contingent and was invalided home from Salisbury Plain through illness from exposure and was discharged here. Recovering his vigor he re-enlisted in the Sportsmen’s Battalion in January, 1916, going immediately with them and serving in france from that same month until invalided to England on the 28th June following.

Pte. Walter’s grandfather and great uncle were in the Crimea war. Both sides of the Buckman family have been well represented in the wars of the last century.
