F Allen


Harrogate Herald  31st October 1917

W H Breare letter

With Sergeant Fletcher were two other boys, Private Draper, son of Mr G Draper, of Nydd Vale Terrace, who brought me the sad news of his brother's death in France. Draper is still in training in this country. The other visitor was F Allen, of 33 Commercial Street, who was in the King's Royal Rifles. He was wounded in the thigh and received his discharge September 23rd. He still has trouble from his old wound. Allen's brother, Corporal Raymond Allen, who worked at the Baths, has likewise been discharged. Another brother, Private N Allen, in the Canadians, is expecting to get his discharge, for he is incapacitated for military duties. Private Cecil Allen, another brother, is still in France. The last-named boy was fighting in German East Africa, where he was wounded, but on recovery was sent to fight in France. This is a good record of service for one family, isn't it?
