Private John Brennan


Harrogate Herald - 20th January 1915

Private John Brennan, of the 1st West Yorkshire Regiment, and whose home is at Briggate, Knaresborough, has been shot in both thighs, and is in the hospital at Boulogne. One of the wounds is rather serious, but in a letter to his wife he says he hopes to return to England soon. He went through the battles of the Marne, Aisne, Ypres, and Armentieres, and described the artillery fir of the Germans as terrible, while in one of his latest letter he said, "We are up to the neck in water".

[In a letter from Jack Cooper to his wife]

I think I told you J Brennan, of Knaresborough, was wounded, besides young Thirkill.
