Boy heroes

The heroism of John Travers CORNWELL of HMS Chester, the hero of Admiral BEATTY in his report of the Jutland battle, has a counterpart in the story of another boy E. T. PEARCE also of the Chester, told in a private letter from one of the young survivors.

Steven MATTHEWS gives the following account of a messmates heroic end, and notes that he [the writer] went down to Devonport on the same day as John CORNWELL.

Letter runs :-

"He PEARCE, was serving at a dangerous post on one of the guns and was wounded early in the action, but, although, he was only a boy a few months older than myself, he bore his agony like a man.

When I saw him he was very white, but tried to be cheerful. He asked me if I would make him a drop of tea, so I went up to our mess and got a basin and made some tea for him, but he was in such pain that he could not sit up to drink it, so I gave it to him in a spoon.

When we reached harbour I managed to get another little chat with him before he was taken ashore to hospital, and just before I left him he said to me, "Well Steve, there is 3d in my box, take it out and get yourself some fags." I never heard of him any more until one of my messmates said that he was dead, and had been taken to London to be buried."
