Lieutenant Allen


Harrogate Herald 1st December 1915

I was glad to receive a call from Lieutenant Allen, one of the sons of Mr Christopher Allen. He is the brother of Fred Allen, of the Canadian Force, who married Miss Annie Knowles, the assistant stationmaster's daughter. Lieutenant Allen first went out with the 1/5th West Yorks. Then he was made Second Lieutenant, and sent to the 2/5th. Next he was sent back to his old regiment, and now he has been transferred for ultimate duty elsewhere. I was much impressed with Lieutenant Allen's smart appearance and keen intelligence. We certainly have great reason to be proud of our Harrogate soldier lads, and we are.
