Private Walter Borrill


Harrogate Herald 27th January 1915

Private W Borrill says :

Dear Sir, Just a line to thank you for your papers, which have all arrived up-to-date. We get them as a rule on Fridays, so they are not losing much time in getting mails through. Still keeping fit in spite of rain and mud, &c. Kind regards.

Walter Borrill


Harrogate Herald - 25th April 1917

The following are men who have sent us the Army post-card briefly stating that they are well and have received papers and parcels, or whose letters contain views that have repeatedly been expressed by other correspondents, but show their friends that they are all right :

Harrogate Herald - 11th July 1917

W H Breare letter

Private W Borrill I had not much space to write about last week. His home address is 9 Skipton Road, Harrogate. [Street directory : John Borrill]. He has been twelve years in the Army, mostly in the Indian Army Reserve. He went to France the first week in September, 1914, but is now transferred to the RFC, with Pioneer-Sergeant F Cumberland. Cumberland's father is an old friend of mine - in fact, he was my gardener for some years, before I came to live in Herald Buildings. By the way, Borrill met George Sawbridge before that soldier was wounded, and when he came home on leave the other day, he saw him on the Sunday. Sawbridge is at one of the Grand Duchess's hospitals, and jolly comfortable.
