Boots 'Comrades in Khaki', October 1915, 'Letters from the Front' (photograph): 'Events in warfare move with such amazing rapidity that matters even of great import are soon forgotten, and the recent disaster to the 'Royal Edward' on service as a troopship has almost faded from public recollection. Members of Boots, however, will remember the sad event with sorrow, for on board the vessel was Corp. EJ Clark, formerly of Branch 94. Mrs Clark, who is shown by her husband's side in the accompanying photograph, has received a letter from the War Office stating the Mr Clark is missing, and that it is feared he is drowned. Mr Clark, who had attained his 35th year, had long been in the service of Boots. he was a highly respected citizen of Ipswich and was a sidesman at the church of St Margaret there.'
