Private J L Coates

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 13th March 1918

Breare letter

Corporal John Coates, Army Service Corps, headquarters, who lives at Woodbine Terrace, often had lively times going up with rations to the first line. He has been out three years. He came to see me and returns to France on Monday week. Has been in hospital twice with rheumatism. Only two of his companions are left out of those who first went with him. His two sons, Private Henry Coates, Royal Flying Corps, is going out soon to France, and Private J L Coates, West Yorks, who has been wounded twice and three times gassed, expects to go back to the Front. Corporal Coates came across a few West Yorks lads last June. Mr Voakes, chaplain of his Division, comes from the Harrogate district.
