Private Edward Baxter


Harrogate Herald - 2nd January 1918

W H Breare letter

I have had reported to me another case of a missing soldier, of whom I should be glad of particulars. Private E Baxter (203004), the second son of Mr and Mrs Baxter, of Knox, Bilton, was reported missing by the War Office on the 22nd August, and later that he was wounded and probably a prisoner. He belongs to the Royal Warwicks, and before enlisting was footman to Colonel Wilkinson, Ashfurlong, Warwickshire. His parents would be glad of news from any of his comrades. His eldest brother, Bombardier William Baxter, RFA, is in a training school in France, and another brother, Private Richard Baxter, is one of the Mons heroes, and was the first winner of the Military Medal in Harrogate. He is in 2nd Dragoon Guards (Royal Scots Brigade).
