Newspaper Report
Miss Bradley, Coagh Street, Cookstown, has received a letter home from an R.C. Chaplain to the effect that her brother, Private James Bradley, 3rd Inniskillings, had been badly wounded in the trenches. He was conscious and had received the last rites of the Church, and had been removed to a base hospital where, with the treatment he would get, he might probably recover, but he was very badly wounded. Private Bradley joined on 16th July 1915, and has been in the fighting line for a considerable time. He was formerly a painter with Mr Mills, Cookstown.
