|Rushden Echo, Friday, August 15th, 1919, transcribed by Kay Collins.
A girl named Hatfield, aged 16, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hatfield, of Albion-place, while spending a holiday at Yarmouth with her parents was taken ill with an affection in the head and had to return home last Tuesday week. Her friends brought her by train, but they could get no further than Peterborough, as it was then late at night. The journey was completed on Wednesday morning, and on their arrival home Dr. Greenfield was called in. The patient seemed to progress for a time, but on Saturday the doctor ordered her to be removed to Northampton hospital. The District Ambulance Motor was used, Mr. H. Denton kindly offering to drive. First-Class Sergt. Prigmore (Transport Officer) and Pte. A. Swindall of the Rushden Ambulance Division, took charge of the case. The girl was operated on at the hospital, and is making as good progress as can be expected.
