Harrogate Herald - 29th December 1915

W H Breare letter

I had Driver J Tilford, Royal Field Artillery, in to see me on Thursday. He has not met a Harrogate man since he went out, yet he has been twelve months at the Front. On Thursday he was enjoying leave and came in with his married sister to have a few words with me. Some time ago Tilford, who is musical, asked for some familiar songs to be sent out to him. A good lady sent him a parcel, but unfortunately the address was not complete, and the music was returned to her. He came to ask about it on Thursday, and I was able to hand it over to him. The lady will be pleased that I have succeeded at last in placing it in his possession. Previously to joining the Army, J Tilford was a stoker on a Wilson liner. He had a brother, Lance Corporal F Tilford, Royal Engineers, who has been out 14 months. The latter is a Regular, and was called up when the war broke out all the way from South Africa. Private S Carter is a brother-in-law of the Tilfords, and before the war was employed on the NE Railway. He, too, has been out a considerable time.
