Harrogate Herald - 16th January 1918

W H Breare letter

I am going to tell you about a most interesting family. It is that of Sapper P Reynard, of 12 Chatsworth Place, who has called to see me. He is one of a family of fourteen, whose members are scattered all over the world. He joined up over 19 months ago, and has been out 13 months. With him are Cooper, of Starbeck, and Richardson, from New Park, who was employed at Johnson's Motor Works. Reynard was formerly a fireman on the North-Eastern Railway. His brother, Sergeant E Reynard, you may remember, was killed. I told you at the time what a fine man he was, and I had rightdown affection for him. He was employed as gas meter inspector before the war. There is another brother of Reynard's (Frank), who is in India; another who was with the Canadians has been discharged and gone back. Still one other brother has been in the Australian Artillery three years on the Belgian front, now sick, and in Leeds Hospital. This one was with Mr Fisher, jeweller, James Street, Harrogate, before emigrating to Australia. You see by this that three boys have all had something in them, for they have made good wherever they have gone.
