Daniels Nelson

Stroud Journal 10/01/1919 – Son of Mr Daniels of Rodborough Court Lodge. Rugby player. He was at the outbreak in the educational profession in Austria, just near Germanys borders and from then on neither his family nor he heard the very least of each others existence. He was treated very well at first but is now suffering visibly from the effects of the wretched food and conditions he has had to put up with. He was one of the finest athletes trained locally and distinguished himself athletically as well as scholastically at Rodborough School and Marling.
