"To Our Boys on Service"

 
 

This series of letters are by William Hammond Breare who was the Editor of the Harrogate Herald. Right from the start of the Great War he wrote a weekly letter to the serving soldiers. These contain general chit-chat as to events in Harrogate and information about all the soldiers who paid him a visit in his office above the main offices of the Harrogate Herald in Montpellier Parade.

As a small diversion I include what is in effect a small potted history of the two Harrogate papers - The Harrogate Advertiser and the Harrogate Herald as it shows how the two papers were linked by the Ackrill and Breare families. They were a powerful force in the history of the town.   < Click >
