"Alive And Kicking" And May Be
Home Shortly.
Stoker John Bolton, who, having no parents,
makes his home with Mr. and Mrs. R. Green,
103, Oldham-street, was on the Warrior at the
time of the naval battle, and is quite safe. He
has written the following to Mrs. Green: - :Just
a few lines to cheer you up, as I suppose you
have heard about the Warrior. I am alive and
kicking. I might be home shortly."
Stoker Bolton, who is 22 years of age, has been
in the Navy for about five years. He was pre-
viously employed as a moulder by Messrs.
Richmond's at their Grappenhall premises. He
was educated at St. Mary's School, Latchford.
He was over on leave about six weeks ago, when
he was in the best of health and spirits. His
brother, Harry, has been wounded whilst serving
with the Lancashire Fusiliers, and is now re-
cuperating in England.
