Private W H Carrick

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 16th January 1918

Letters

Private W H Carrick writes : 

I was very upset when I saw in the photo page you had had a military funeral of Lance Corporal C S Beck. He was a big pal of mine in the happy days of civil life. I would like you to send Mr and Mrs Beck my heartfelt sympathy. It is good when we can sit in our billets at night and read the old town's news in the Herald. I saw the directors of the Grand Opera House had been entertaining the wounded soldiers to the matinee of Aladdin. By Jove! Don't I wish I had been there. I worked at the Opera House for a year and six months before joining up.

 

Harrogate Herald - 30th January 1918

Letters

Private W H Carrick writes : 

It is like being at home when the postman brings the letters and papers. The first thing I read is the news in brief. I was sorry to see Mrs Greetham's son had died in India. I saw you had "High Jinks" at the Grand Opera House. I like to look at the advertisement, as I worked 1 years there before joining up.
