[Spelt HARDWICK on memroial] Sergeant 3413, 1st Battalion, Durham Light Infantry. Killed in action 5 February 1900 at Spion Kop. There is a memorial plaque to him in Bramford Church, Suffolk, and he is also commemorated on the gravestone of his wife's mother in Gt Blakenham, Suffolk, churchyard. Born c. 1871 in Ipswich, resident Bamford. Eldest of the 15 children of Joseph and Maria Hardwicke. He was a reservist of the 1st Durham Light Infantry and was recalled for service. On the eve of battle he wrote home to his parents from Spearman's Hill, near Ladysmith:

"Dear Mother and Father
Just a few lines hoping you all are well. I am quite well and I wish Lizzie lots of happiness. We have a hard battle to fight in a day or two, we are face to face with our enemy and we mean to do our duty to a man and go through at this time. We can see the Boers from here and they are in a very strong position. Do not worry for me. I feel if I get through this it will be a good step towards the return to Old England - God bless you all and my poor wife. If I fall, try and comfort her, we must do our duty and fight like British soldiers as our Country has a lot at stake and we have an artful and deceitful enemy to cope with but beat them we must and will, we hear there are nearly 50,000 to fight here, they are stronger than us. The paper came in handy. I had none. We have never received anything from England yet only a small piece of pudding but we are not near the railway now so it is hard to get things to us but it is worst for the poor fellows in Ladysmith, Walter is sending one as well as he is alright and sends his best respect to you all - give my love to all the girls and tell them to accept this as a letter to all, I was pleased with yours today, the heat is 114 in the shade today.

Goodbye this time, from your affectionate son. William Hardwicke Tell Joe to be a good boy."
