A Red Cross file also exists which gives information reportedly from a letter by General Birdwood himself to his mother and states that Private Watson was with his battalion during the attack on the night of 8th August 1916 N. W. of Pozieres. He goes on to say that he was last seen the next day on August 9th in the trench wounded by shell fire in the shoulder.
A Letter in his file from a Canadian Soldier J. Shorrock 5th Field Ambulance 2nd Canadian Division gives the following further insight confirming his death;
“It is with deep sympathy I write to you this letter and tell you that I have mailed separately a pocket bible I found on the corpse of one who was no doubt near and dear to you,
He lies buried past what was once the enemy’s front line so that you will know he died bravely.”
