Private D Cassells


Harrogate Herald - 5th September 1917


Private D Cassells, of Summerbridge, writing from France says : 

Having received the Herald and read of your kindness in distributing requisites for the benefit of your town soldiers' enjoyment in France and elsewhere, I am writing if it is in your power to forward me a football, as just at the present time there are, along with myself, several Harrogate boys. They have suggested this request to you. Your paper is a thing I eagerly look forward to, also my chums here all wait patiently for its arrival, and immediately it appears there's no breaking them off for conversation. We are in a position for a short time for a good game of our favourite sport - football. Over my shoulders stand my chums, who are wondering along with myself whether we are asking too much.
