Private John Edward Arthur Binns


Harrogate Herald - 18th April 1917

Private J Binns writes : 

I have been left Ireland now some four weeks, and miss the Herald very much. I am pleased to say I am A1 again and expect to visit Harrogate once again very shortly before going out again. I have had a very good time whilst in Ireland, and I hope to have the same while I stay in England.


Harrogate Herald - 19th September 1917

Roll of Honour

Private J Binns (West Yorks), son of Mr & Mrs John Binns, of 10 Mowbray Square, Harrogate, was seriously wounded in the chest on September 6th, and died as a result on September 8th in hospital in France. Their Majesties have expressed their sympathy with the bereaved parents, and the chaplain in a letter says he passed away peacefully, and was buried with reverent Christian rites, assuring Mr & Mrs Binns of his sincere sympathy. The Sister at the Clearing Station said he had difficulty in breathing, and an operation gave relief for a few hours, but there was little hope from the beginning. She concludes with deepest sympathy.
