Gunner, Charles Froggatt
(Tank Corps)

Gunner Charles Froggatt (picture, left), third son of Mr Alf Froggatt, New Street Darfield, has been wounded in the left forearm.

In a letter home he says, although’ wounded, he could not help but attend to the wounds of two Germans hard by, but they left him to do the best for himself.

Gnr. Froggatt is 20 years of age and enlisted in June, 1917.

He previously worked at Houghton Main Colliery.

Another brother, Alfred Froggatt (picture right), who was in Australia at the outbreak of the war, joined a machine gun corps out there, and came over to do his bit for the mother country.

He contracted trench fever in France and was also gassed, through which he obtained his discharge and returned, to Australia.
