Sergeant J A Clarke


Harrogate Herald - 21st February 1917

W H Breare letter

I had a visit from another soldier who is to be given a commission. He is home on a month's leave in consequence. It is Sergeant J A Clarke, son of Mr & Mrs W Clarke, Fairfield, Boroughbridge Road, Knaresborough. He joined on September 1st, 1914, was at Sulva, Egypt, and France. Was in hospital from July to end of August. He was at Beaumont Hamel. His brother Percy Clarke is in the Notts and Derby, and James Clarke, another brother, in Ireland. Clarke was made lance corporal January 4th, 1916, and sergeant, October 1st, 1916. He is a good sample of a soldier, and I am sure will make a splendid officer.
