ANOTHER WHITTLEFIELD WEAVER (Burnley Express 28/4/1917)

Wednesday morning’s post brought to Mrs. Emmett, of 35 Hulme-street, Burnley, the sad news that her husband, Corpl. Arthur Emmett, 32857, King’s Own Royal Lancaster Regt., was killed in action on the 9th of April. She had no previous intimation from any officer or comrade, and the news came as a shock. She has three children.
Corpl. Emmett, who would have been 31 years of age three weeks after the date of his death, was formerly a weaver at Simpson’s Victoria Mill, Trafalgar. He has no parents. He enlisted two years ago last January, and was taken out to the front about four months ago. He attended the Holy Trinity Mission in Argyle-street, and had played football for the mission team. He has only one brother, and he is in the Army.
