  • Description

    BRAVE CAPTAIN KILLED News has been received, at Wallsend, that Temporary Captain William George Graham, of Hill Grove, Park View, Wallsend, has been killed whilst serving with the 5th Batt. N.F. Captain Graham was mentioned in the despatch of Sir John French last week for distinguished conduct and gallantry in the field. He was held in high esteem at Wallsend, having acted as schoolmaster at the Stephenson School, Willington Quay. Major Luhrs, in a letter, expresses the feeling of loss which his death has caused among the ranks, and points out that he was one of the best and bravest officers and a true friend of the whole battalion. He was married only last Octobert o Miss A.E. Briggs. This photograph was published in the Illustrated Chronicle on the 29th of June 1915. During the Great War the Illustrated Chronicle published photographs of soldiers and sailors from Newcastle and the North East of England, which had been in the news. The photographs were sent in by relatives and give us a glimpse into the past. The physical collection held by Newcastle Libraries comprises bound volumes of the newspaper from 1910 to 1925. We are keen to find out more about the people in the photographs. If you recognise anyone in the images please comment below.
