HAWES – PRIVATE FRED SHAW MISSING

News was received last Saturday by Mrs. Shaw, Hawes, wife of Private Fred Shaw, Yorkshire Regiment, that her husband had been missing since June 7th. Unofficial news to the same effect reached Mrs. Shaw about three weeks ago, and after repeated enquiries a letter arrived last Saturday from the officer commanding his company stating that Pte. Shaw had been missing since the 7th ult. He had not passed through into hospital and no news of his being a prisoner has been received. The officer, in expressing his and his fellow officers regrets at being unable to give definite information, spoke in high terms of Private Shaw as a good and brave soldier, and said they were sorry to lose him from the Company. Pte. Shaw joined up in June 1916, and went overseas in September the same year. Much sympathy is felt for Mrs. Shaw, who still entertains the hope that her husband will return.
