Lance Corporal Arthur D Barnes


Harrogate Herald - 25th April 1917

Arthur D Barnes says : 

I am just writing these few lines to ask you if you will do me a favour, as I know you are always willing to help the boys whenever you can, and that is : Do you think you could fit me up with a wristlet watch if you have one in? I have just had the bad luck to break my own, and it is too much damaged to have it repaired. I miss it very much, as it is something when you know the time out here. I like to read the letters in the Knaresborough Post, which mother has sent me all the time I have been out here. It comes as regular as clockwork every week, and I look forward to it. The weather out here is still very bad. I am in the Yorks Regiment, and not in the West Yorks, as most of he Knaresborough boys are. Wishing you and your paper every success. PS - I suppose things will be very dull in England now that everybody's working.
