Trooper W Capstick

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 24th January 1917

Letters

Trooper W Capstick, writing from Salonica, says : 

I always anticipate the Herald coming, and to hear of the doings in and around Harrogate. I read with deep regret that my particular chum, Alec Duncan, of the Camerons, is missing. I sincerely trust better news comes from the War Office. At present I am situated at the base, and up to now there has been no actual excitement. It is quite common to see the anti-aircraft guns playing "pop" with the enemy aircraft. Harrogate chaps are jolly scarce out here. I met Corporal Sid E Watson, RAMC, [Probably son of Frederic W Watson, Holmfield, 10 Alexandra Road - 1916 Street Directory] of Alexandra Road, a few weeks ago. He is now up the line with his unit.
