FROM TRENCHES TO MOTHER'S SICK BED. Corporal Cecil Thuey. of the Royal Field Artillery, returned to the front on Tuesday a vary happy lad. By the special help of the King he was enabled to come home to see his mother, who was lying ill at her home in Forest Gate, E., and srying night and day for a sight of her boy. Mrs. Thuey was stricken down with paraly- sis last November, when her eldest eon was wounded at Armentiers, and when she was believed to be dying her daughter wrote to Cecil asking him to apply for leave. This he did, but was told he oould not spared. The mother's constant crying for her son so affected the daughter that when a message to France, countersigned by Dr. Goodson, of Leystone, asking Cecil's offer to spare him, again, brought refusal, the girl wrote direct to the King. To the great joy of the mother the following letter was received a day or two later:— Madam,—In reply to your petition to the King, which has been for- warded to this department, I am commanded by the Army Council to acquaint you that a telegram has been sent to the military authorities over-seas asking that leave may be granted to your brother, Corporal C Thuey, R.F.A., as an exceptional case.—I am, your obedient servant, B. B. Cubitt So Cecil, who admitted that he had given up all hope of ever seeing his mother alive again, came home, and told her how he was awakened in the night and his officer told him he could go home. Mrs. Thuey has benefited wonder- fully by her eon's visit. Cecil is one of four sons, all of whom have joined the Army. He gave up a good posi- tion in a solicitor's office to fiyht for his country.
