Charlie Buck


Harrogate Herald 5th September 1917

W H Breare letter

Driver G Mathers, RE, of New Park, came to see me just after I had finished my last letter to you. Mathers not long ago intended to write me for Arthur Ashby's address. Ashby, if you remember, drove for the Coal and Coke Co. Two days after he met the very man, so had no occasion to write. You will remember that Jack Smith (Mather's step-brother or half-brother, I forget which), was killed at Vimy Ridge. Mathers has been out 2 1/2 years and this was his second leave, the first being 17 months ago. He has come through thus far wonderfully well - neither being wounded or ill. No Harrogate chaps with him, but he had seen Charlie Buck, of Electric Avenue, New Park.
