Private George Chatter


Harrogate Herald - 13th February 1918


Corporal James H Forth writes : 

There are six of us, including a Sergeant and myself, in Palestine. Where I am is lovely and fertile, and a lot of the natives are returning to their so-called homes, and commencing to cultivate the land. Some have got corn up, and settling down in peace again. But oh! They are such thieves; they will steal anything. Some of them plough with camels, others with a cow and a donkey combined, and they are very poor, always asking for food. Do you know if Private Willis Taylor, of Starbeck, who was missing, has been heard of, as he worked with me on the NER? I should be pleased if you would remember me to Private George Chatter, Grenadier Guards, who is in France, through your paper, as it is a long time since he wrote me. Some wonderful changes have taken place out here since I last wrote you, but all on our side. With best wishes to you and for your paper. Where I am in Turkey I should not see one but for the Herald and the News of the World, which I get, too.
