Harrogate Herald - 28th November 1917

Roll of Honour

Gunner A Barnes, son of Mr & Mrs D Barnes, of Regent House, Starbeck, who earlier in the week was reported dangerously wounded, it appears was suffering from gas poisoning and, we regret to say, passed away at the 46th CCS, Belgium, on the 14th inst. The parents have received their Majesties' message of sympathy, also a letter from the captain, who says : "I beg to tender you the deepest sympathy in your bereavement. He was an excellent gunner, and his loss is felt by all ranks". The sister-in-charge wrote : "He was brought to us on Sunday, the 4th inst., having been badly gassed, and although at first he was not considered dangerously ill, the day after he became worse, and we had him moved to another ward. All the time he never seemed to make and progress, and each day he seemed to get weaker, until at last he slipped away on Wednesday, the 14th inst., shortly before 1am. You have no idea how sorry I feel for you. It seems so dreadful to have to write and tell you this terrible news. He is buried in the military cemetery behind our station, and now rests amongst so many others who have made the great sacrifice. With all my sympathy to you who have given so much".
