    LUTON NEWS & BEDFORDSHIRE CHRONICLE: Pte. C Blaydon. The war has taken heavy toll of the household of Mr and Mrs Blaydon, The Knapps, Toddington-road, Leagrave. Official intimation has been received that their second son, Pte C Blaydon, was killed in Action on July 20th. Since the outbreak of war he had been serving with the Bedfordshire Regiment, including the Dardanelles campaign. He was a stretcher-bearer, and had seen considerable active service. The youngest son, Pte A Blaydon, was killed at Suvla Bay on August 15th, 1915, with the 1/5ths. The eldest son, Percy, is serving in France with the RGA, and was recently in hospital suffering from shell shock, but he has now returned to his battery.
    A letter was received by his parents on Tuesday morning from his pal:- "I thought it my duty to write to tell you that your son, Pte Cecil Blaydon, is dead. He was killed instantly while we were raiding the enemy's position. He was like by everyone in his company, officers and men, and I was myself a great pal of his. He was buried behind our line in a cemetery this morning."
    The eldest son, Bomb. P S Blaydon is back in hospital again with shell-shock.
