Harrogate Herald - 7th February 1917

W P Burkinshaw, writing under date February 1st, says : 

Once again I take the pleasure of thanking you very much for your fine paper, which I receive every week. I'm sure it's the one thing we boys out here who receive it look forward to at the week-ends. It enables us to know of the doings in the dear old town and of chums we knew in our peaceful days. I was up seeing J Dalton last week. He does look well, but like myself wishes this terrible war over. However, I think and hope you will have us all back with you before long this time next year.
