Harrogate Herald 2nd May 1917

Acknowledging receipt of the Herald, W E Bootland says : 

I have not had time to write these last three weeks, as we have been after Fritz. One afternoon we dropped two heavy shells into his front line after tea. Four of us and an officer went over and brought back ten prisoners. Half an hour later we went over in force and occupied two villages. The battalion has been congratulated by the GOC of the division. here was a large town in front of us where the Huns sent many mines up and lit many fires.
