Harrogate Herald - 11th July 1917

Roll of Honour

Private W Archer, son of Mr & Mrs Archer, 9 Pearl Street, Starbeck (who a fortnight ago received a postcard stating he was a prisoner), although unable to write himself, has sent letters home stating he is going on nicely, and his parents need not worry. This news was in one written on May 20th, but which did not arrive until after a second one dated June 3rd. In the letter he says : "I am very glad to say that I am slowing mending and my wound is healing very nicely. I hope you are all quite well. We are getting food through the Red Cross Society, so you need not worry, for they are very good parcels. Please remember me to all my friends. Tell them I shall be very pleased to hear from them at any time they can write. I hope that all the farm stock are doing well. There are some nice woods around here, all fresh and green, which make me think of the old place".
