Private Bootland


Harrogate Herald 2nd January 1917

W H Breare letter

To continue with Starbeck, Private Bootland, RWK, son of Mr A Bootland, Regent Place, Starbeck, has likewise been to see me. He left the front on Christmas Day. Has been two years three months in the Army without being sick or wounded. He told me that T B Spackman, of Harrogate, is at Divisional Headquarters, and the only man near him. Driver Coates used to be in the division, but he has lost sight of him. Bootland used to be at the station refreshment room, then he went to work at Hartlepool at the Grand Hotel, from whence he enlisted.
