Harrogate Herald - 29th December 1915

Driver A S Brunt says : 

Well, Mr Breare, you always write us a nice, cheery letter each week, and it interests boys that have never seen Harrogate, for they all want to see it in turn. Of course, I pass it on to them. I am pleased to say that I am in the very best of health, and I hope that you and all the boys on active service are the same. We have had some lively times since I wrote to you last; the Bosche were sending us a Xmas box before the time, and they were dropping around the hospital. One shell dropped in the garden and one at the gate, so we had a lively time for about four hours, but we didn't mind as long as they didn't hit the hospital. Our guns sent some back with interest, I can assure you. I am expecting leave in the New Year, and I will give you a call and thank you personally for your kindness. I wish you and all the boys (soldiers and sailors) of Harrogate, and all the kind people who help to make us happy, a merry Christmas and a bright and prosperous New Year. Again thanking you for your kindness.
