Birkenhead Private gives his Life


News has been received by Mrs. Ainscough, of 9, George Street, Birkenhead, that her son, Private David Ainscough, of the 1st Battalion Cheshire Regiment, had been killed in action in France.

Private Ainscough who was only 20 years of age, had been in the regiment about two years, and on the outbreak of war was sent with the British Expeditionary Force to France. His mother has received many communications from him, written in a very cheery spirit.

Before the war he was employed as a boiler cleaner by the Pacific Steamship Company. He was educated at St. Werburgh’s School. His brother George of the same regiment, is now a prisoner of war in Germany, while another brother, who is attached to the Lancashire Fusiliers, has been to France, was wounded, and is now at Barrow-in-Furness.
