Private Goldborough

Private Goldborough does not appear in Nurse Oliver's album but he was a patient at Hickwells. His name appears in a Sussex Express article from November 5th 1915:

CONCERT - A highly successful concert was held at the Parish Room the other evening.  The proceeds were in aid of the building fund and the performers included several wounded soldiers… duets: Corporal Wood and Private Allan … song “The Sunshine of Your Smile”, Corporal Wood … recitation, “Wreck of the Hesperus”, Private Goldborough… The soldiers were cheered immediately they reached the platform.

It is possible that like Corporal Wood and Private Allan, he was a Loos casualty. Nothing else is currently known about this man.
