Culpin had died of wounds after the left arm had been amputated, and the following letter has also been received:- "12th CCS, BEF, France. 11/10/18. Dear Mrs Culpin, I write to express my sincere sympathy with you on the death of your son. He was admitted to hospital on the 8th and died the same day, at 2.45pm. I don't think he suffered much, as he was unconscious most of the time. I buried him in the British cemetery here. May he rest in peace, and may God accept the noble sacrifice he has made in the war. My heart goes out to you poor mothers. God help you. Yours truly, H A Griffiths, Chaplain." Pte.
