Cpl. Eric Jean Bradshaw, son of James Moore Bradshaw and Jeanne Alexise Rousseau

Mr. Bradshaw, school inspector, Broughshane Road, Ballymena, has received a letter from his son, Corporal Eric Jean Bradshaw, who is in a base hospital at Rouen, informing him that he has been wounded in the neck by a piece of shrapnel while in the trenches and again in the knee by a piece of high explosive shell while on his way to the rear.

 Corporal Bradshaw joined the Chemistry Corps of the Royal Engineers only a few weeks ago.

 In his letter he states he was wounded on Saturday, September 25, and it took him six hours to get out of the communication trench when he was wounded again on the way out by a whizz -bang (shrapnel shell) dozens of which were bursting all over the place.

 Proceeding, he writes:- “About eight o’clock I reached a field ambulance and was brought to a clearing hospital further back. I stopped there for a day and was shifted back further to a general hospital which, after our arrival, was converted into a clearing station so we had to go back further still.

 “We stayed in that hospital for about two days and then were transferred to trains and brought here to Rouen. It was an awful journey and lasted over six hours. The train was not an ambulance train, just an ordinary French 3rd class ‘crawler’. I am writing this in the YMCA Hall. It is a grand place with books and papers and games. There are concerts occasionally and paper is provided for writing letters.

 “You will have seen in the papers that our attack was a great success. I saw them bringing in the prisoners - hundreds of them. Just opposite to where I was in the trench we captured 17 machine guns on a 22 yard front. It was a regular fort with bomb-proof shelters etc. The Germans thought it was impregnable.”

 

 SECOND Lieutenant Eric Jean Bradshaw, King’s Own Lancaster Regiment, officially reported wounded and admitted to hospital with gunshot wounds to the knee, is the eldest son of Mr. James Bradshaw, district inspector of national schools, who resides at Glendaragh, Ballymena. 
Educated in Brussels, he afterwards went to the Royal School, Dungannon from which he joined the army. He enlisted in the ranks of the Chemist Corps of the Royal Engineers early in the war and was wounded and gassed at Loos, Later he was given a commission in the King’s Own Royal Lancaster Regiment.
