Shortly after the death of Private Hugh Bradley, Lance Corporal John Gallagher, Royal Irish Regiment, wrote to the deceased's mother conveying the sad news of the death of her son. On behalf of the Rosemount boys, Lance Corporal Gallagher expressed deep sympathy with Mrs Bradley in her great loss. 'It should comfort you,' Gallagher added, 'to know he had all the rites of the Catholic Church before he died. He was a very brave boy to the last. He had not much suffering.'
