1915-04: Two of my 4 sons are in the Army: My second son, Alexander Gordon Bostock, who has been in charge of the Ipswich Hippodrome has joined up.

1919-01: It is with a heavy Heart that I write to inform Showland that on the 12th of January, my son Lieut. A. Gordon Bostock died at the Military Hospital, Dovercourt. He has succumbed to pneumonia, following influenza. To accentuate this tragedy he had been married for just four months and was only three days away from his discharge after four and a half years of service; this has really added to the suffering of the family.
