Extract from Hartlepool Northern Daily Mail. 16/12/29. LAST BRITISH SOLDIER IN GERMANY. (from our own correspondent) Wiesbaden, Sunday. Corporal T H Hutt, of the Corps of Military Police the one British soldier remaining on German soil, is lying in a critical condition in the town hospital at Wiesbaden. He was admitted to the hospital over three weeks ago, and his mother and sister were rushed to his bedside a few days later when his life was despaired of. His mother, a Stepney woman, rarely leaves the special ward in which he lies and Mrs Hutt is unstinted in her praise of the efforts of the German doctors and nursing staff. She refuses to give up hope. Extract from the Scotsman, 24/12/29. L/Cpl Hutt, of the Military Police who died in the Municipal Hospital at Weisbaden last Thursday, was buried with full military honours, rendered by the French Army, in the British military cemetery yesterday afternoon.
