Private Bassham


Harrogate Herald - 30th May 1917

Excusing his delay in writing on account of being very busy with the Bulgars, Gunner Shipman says : 

I have never seen any Harrogate lads here yet, but when I was in Malta I had a letter from Private Bassham, in RAMC, and he is getting on fine, and I was going to answer when I was ordered to pack up and get ready for where I am now, sorry to say. I saw his photo in the Herald, and it just reminded me that I ought to write to him, so I will at the first possible chance. I would be much obliged if one of your readers would send me a wristlet watch, as they are very useful when on telephone duty and going out on lines. Am also very short of cigarettes.
