1/5th Bn Sherwood Foresters (Notts & Derby Regiment)
Pte Salathiel Sanderson Worksop Guardian 28 March1919 It is rather late in the day to talk of soldiers who have made the supreme sacrifice but news has just been received in Worksop that Pte Salathiel Sanderson, Notts and Derbys (Sherwood Foresters), son of Mr and Mrs J H Sanderson, 71 Newcastle Avenue, Worksop, was killed in action or died of wounds, on or about October 21st 1918. Pte Sanderson who was familiarly known as “Joe” enlisted in May 1915, and after being in training in Watford and Luton, took part in the Irish rebellion. Later he saw service in France, but was wounded and invalided home in April 1917. He returned to France but was reported wounded and missing on October 21st 1918. Since then he has been reported killed in action or died of wounds, and now official information has been received that he was killed. Pte Sanderson, who was only 23 years of age at the time of his death, formerly worked at the Manton Colliery and was well known in Worksop. He was a splendid soldier, and all the sympathy of a wide circle of friends will be extended to Mr and Mrs Sanderson in their bereavement. Their son died when the whole British front was advancing on the Germans, and it is particularly sad that he should meet his death when the end of the fighting was in sight.
