Sapper W D Calvert


Harrogate Herald 29th January 1919

Writing from Germany on December 26th, 1918, Sapper W D Calvert says : 

It has been quite an interesting track through a portion of France and Southern Belgium. The majority of our journey has been through the Ardennes, which, as you know, are very hilly and well wooded rather stiff for a track nevertheless the scenery is really very fine and an agreeable change from the destruction of war now far behind us. At present we are in the village of Erp, about 16 miles SW of Cologne. The German people so far have treated us with every respect and seem quite eager to help us in any way, - maybe from fear but I hardly think so.
