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.

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.
