G. Christy, falling in action at Magny La Fosse, October 3rd, 1918.

From "The Leader" Friday October 18th 1918

The Late SEC.LT J.G. CHRISTY

Mrs. J G Christy of "Collingwood House", Kettering, has received official news that her husband Second Lieut. John George Christy of the Leicestershire Regiment was killed in action on October 3rd. Lieut. Christy was the elder son of Mr and Mrs. J. Christy, 8, William Street and a nephew of Mr. Frank Wright. The bereaved wife has received the following letters.

Oct 5th 1918

"Dear Mrs. Christy- I very much regret to tell you that your husband was killed in action on the 3rd and was buried by me to-day in a little village cemetery just behind the Hindenburg Line which your husband and his division so bravely and wonderfully stormed on Sunday last. It will be a little comfort to know that his end came very suddenly and painlessly being hit by a sniper. His padre the Rev. C.W Buck was killed on Sunday and is buried by the side of your husband. I need not say that your husband's memory is very precious to the battalion. With deepest sympathy I remain yours very sincerely"

Howard W. Turton
Wesleyan Chaplain----Brigade.

Leicestershire Regiment
Oct 5th 1918

"Dear Mrs. Christy - It is with deep regret that I have to write and tell you of the death of your husband Second-Lieut. J.G. Christy. He was killed in action on October 3rd being hit by a shell splinter while reconnoitering an enemy's stronghold which his company was going to attack. He died at once and felt no pain. You have no doubt read in the paper of the doings of this division and though the battle in which your husband met his death was four days later it was none the less a fight in which we did just as well and gained as much credit. So many of the officers have lost their lives in this war for apparently no good results. In the case of your husband it is different. We were in the middle of a successful battle and he was struck down leading his men, and to my mind there can be no nobler death.

What we have always admired so much in your husband was the marvellous way in which he ~~~~~~~ himself to conditions which must have been hateful to him. His should not have been a soldiers life and all the horrors and grimness of war must have been even more repulsive to him than to many of us. Yet he never shirked a duty, never 'begged off' a ~~~~~ no matter the hardship, the discomfort or the danger, he was always ready for it. More than once his work on patrol received the commendation of the Major-General for his daring. His loss will be keenly felt by all of us. Words of sympathy are empty things, but it is no exaggeration to say that every officer and man in the Regiment sympathises most sincerely with you in this great loss. I only hope that you have the strength to bear it with the courage and fortitude that your husband showed out here. ~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~~ yours very sincerely"
