Letter to his mother:

Dear Mrs Wharmby,
Pte. J. Wharmby passed through our Casualty Clearing Station very seriously wounded. He was so very weak that one of our men here volunteered to have quite a lot of his blood transfered into Wharmby's veins. The operation seemed to be successful at first but strength was not maintained and he passed quietly away on the night of the 29th.

It was a Private Corns who offered to transfuse his blood with Wharmby.
