Jack Colbert


Harrogate Herald - 8th December 1915

W H Breare letter

Sapper W E Greetham, Royal Fusiliers, Northern Signal Company, went out in April. August 16th he was attacked by enteric fever and sent to Malta the next day, where he remained for six weeks. He came to Cardiff Hospital for a week, and then went to Swansea Hospital for seven weeks. He has now arrived home, convalescent, and is just about right. In his company, at the Dardanelles, were Jack Pattison, Bob Johnson, Arthur Brogden, of the Post Office telephone department. There were also Billy Langley, Norman Pollard, and Jack Colbert; they were all right when he last saw them. Harry Brain saw Greetham's picture in the Herald, and so learnt where he was and went to see him. Greetham was not in when Brain "called" (reads like home civilities, doesn't it?), but left his address, and Greetham made a point of meeting him later.
