Sid Bywell


Harrogate Herald - 28th November 1917

W H Breare letter

I have had a visit from Sergeant N H Waddington, of the West Yorks, son of Mr and Mrs Waddington, 5 St Mary's Avenue. He was over last august on leave and then called to see me. The present is the second leave, for he went out in April, 1915. He is now attached, as an instructor, to another Corps. He has had no wounds, no sickness, and is correspondingly jolly. With him came to my office an old pal of his, Corporal R Woodhall, AOC, whom Waddington had not seen since the war began. He met him whilst on leave this time; so the two of them are having a rare furlough together. Woodhall is son of Mr and Mrs F W Woodhall, 38 James Street, which perhaps you know is Mr J R Ogden's business place. I know of his mother by hearsay, and I can assure you I have heard most pleasant things about her. I am so glad she has her boy at home. Woodhall went out November 1st, 1915. He, too, is on his second leave and has been in good health and received no wounds. With him at the Front is Sid Bywell, who used to be at the gas Office. Bywell was recently home to get married. With Woodhall too, is Sergeant Naylor, who is an old Western Council School boy, whose father was once stationmaster at Knaresborough.
