Harrogate Herald - 22nd December 1915

Private W Brown, Royal Army Medical Corps, writing home, says : 

Dear Miss Pearce and Auntie, I am very sorry that I have not written before, nor did I think that the next time I wrote that it would be on board ship. Daresay you are very anxious about me, but don't worry - am all right and very comfortable. We are practically travelling second class, and if it wasn't for the khaki and it being a hospital ship, you couldn't tell there was a war on. Our little batch from Netley was rushed off pretty quick on the Saturday. You would love to be on this voyage; to me it is most enjoyable. The sunrise in a morning is a very pretty sight. The other day we caught a glimpse of the coast , and it being a mountainous part, some of the peaks were snow-capped and the early morning sun shining on them presented a bonny sight.
