A holy mis­sion

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IN your March 4, 2015 num­ber, you printed my let­ter re­gard­ing a Bi­ble I had pur­chased in a shop in Mold, Flintshire. It be­longed to Wal­ter Henry Simp­son, who had been killed at the bat­tle of Ma­nipur, Up­per Burma, on March 25, 1891, serv­ing with the 43rd Gurkha Light In­fantry. Af­ter mak­ing a few en­quiries, I can hap­pily say that it’s now back where it be­longs—with the Simp­son fam­ily. He­len Higginbottom, by email
