SIR - I would like to point out that the photo top right hand on page 44 on May 3 is not Private Casson, of Clapham - it is my late mother's uncle -Private Thomas Whitney Smith - Service no. 266344, son of Emily and the late Henry Smith of Rose Cottage, Lothersdale, who died on 17th April, 1918, age 24.

His brother Private William Robert Smith - Service No. 18771 died on 7th July 1916 age 21.

I don't know how this error has come about - but the details must have originally been wrong in the Craven Herald archives?

I have the same photo of Thomas Whitney, also of the two brothers in the Smith family group just before World War One. What a sad affair.

Joan Tindale, Cowling.

Editor's Note: yes, the Herald archives had this wrong. Thanks to Joan for putting the record straight.
