Private H Atkinson


Harrogate Herald - 5th December 1917

W H Breare letter

Private H Atkinson, of 9 Grove Park Walk, arrived in Harrogate from Macedonia on Sunday, November 25th. He has been sent home for a commission. Whilst out there he had malaria, of which he now and then still feels symptoms. I was much interested to hear from him the conditions under which he had been serving. Atkinson has written a most interesting sketch of street life in Macedonia, which I hope to publish ere long. I am sure Atkinson will make a fine officer; he seems to have everything that goes to make one. But how nice it is for his wife and little girl of seven to have him at home for a fairly long spell, after being so far away so long.
