Samuel Tozer, a brother of Mr. Arthur Tozer, 29 Sunny- side, Ogmore Vale :—"Dear Brother,—After being sick, I was sent to hospital, and in due course reached the casualty station, whence I was sent to a base hospital for an operation. During my stay there, I volunteered for trans- fusion of blood to a badly wounded so ldier. I did not know the poor chap, but eventually I got his name and number. His name was L.- Cpl. Housley, of the Yorks and Lancashire Regt. He was doing well when I left him next morning, and I believe he is still alive. I gave about a. pint and a half of blood, and am still in hospital, and have to undergo another oper- ation. I enlisted in October, 1914, and have had close on three years' active service in France."
