Gunner H Clarke


Harrogate Herald - 28th November 1917

W H Breare letter

Sergeant F Lupton, son of Mrs Lupton of 13 Robert Street, is on leave for fourteen days' and came to see me. He was last home on leave December 1916. he has been in all the Ypres offensives up to October 4th, when his lot were granted a rest. He was still in action, however, but on a quiet front, when he came away. The only Harrogate boy who has been with him was wounded and since transferred to another regiment. His name is Gunner H Clarke. Lupton has neither been sick nor wounded. He returns from leave on Friday. I was pleased that Lupton brought his wife to see me whom I have not seen since his last leave. It was nice to see both and good of them to spare me time out of their precious leave. They are a very happy couple and both have equal reasons to be so. I hope it may not be long before they are reunited for good. Whilst I am Dictaphoning this sentence I am thinking of all other married soldiers.
