High Peak News, Saturday 26 September 1914
The list of Matlock Bath residents and natives now serving their King
and Country is as follows
Colin and W. Brooker,
C. R. Lymn,
and the son of Mr. Lewis Pearson.
Those who had a talk with Sergt. Reg Atkinson, on furlough last week,
must have been proud of the splendid men Matlock Bath has sent to
serve. He speaks in high terms of the work of the Derbyshire Yeomanry,
and particularly what the Matlock Troop are doing, and he wished us
to thank those who has so kindly sent gifts to the Troops of shirts,
socks, tobacco and cigarettes."
The High Peak News of 26 Dec 1914 reports that Lance-Corporal Arthur
Reeds (son of Peter) and Lance-Corporal Jack Gregory were the first
two Matlock Bath Residents to enlist.
