Staff-Sergeant W.G. Lamkin, of the R.A.M.C., who recently married a Ventnor lady, writes home stating that he has been moved from his Portsmouth chums to the Guards Division. They had a great send-off from their old division, speeches and commendatory letters from the generals, and, above all, the band to play them away. "It was good," remarks the sergeant, "but I think I would rather stay with the old boys." Sergt. Lamkin has had the honour of winning the Russian second class medal of St. George through an incident in which he took part during the battle of Aisne.
