News of Service Men

Suffolk & Essex Free Press
08 July 1943

Mr. and Mrs. H Tricker, of 6, Bonsey Terrace, Boxford, have just received news of one of their two sons who were serving in the 5th Suffolk Regiment and have been missing since the fall of Singapore. A Japanese censored postcard reached them on Saturday week from Vernon the youngest of five serving brothers, and read: "Am safe and well. I am a prisoner of war and in the best of health. No need to worry." No news has yet come from the older brother, Maurice. Harry, the eldest son, is at present on service in India, while Frank and Lawrence are serving in this country.
