Dedicated to the memory of all the men and women of Bridgnorth, Shropshire, who died during the two World Wars.

2nd Lieut. S. A. Westrop.

[Bridgnorth Grammar School Magazine, July, 1915]

"Since my last bout in the trenches, when I was there 11 days in 13, we have started another instruction class and I expect it will be the end of next week before we go up again. I much prefer the trenches to instructing officers in the use of the machine gun. Since I last wrote I have been up twice, once for two days and the other time for one day only. While I was there I saw men killed and wounded by trench mortars very close to me but I have not been touched yet. The last day I saw a great battle between a B.E. Biplane and a Taube. They circled up and up and fired at each other and swooped over each other from 7-30 till dusk, but neither seemed to win and both sheered off in the twilight."
