Stoker G Cottam

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 17th April 1918

W H Breare letter

Two representatives of His Majesty's Navy gave me a call today whilst on leave, viz. : 

Stoker G Cottam, son of Mr and Mrs Cottam, 1 Elwyn Terrace, New Park, who has been five years in the service, and Seaman W Fowler, son of Mrs Fowler, of 128 King's Road, who has served three years. Both have been together on a ship which has been engaged in convoy work and is now taken out of commission for repairs. They return to barracks on Thursday, when they expect to remain ashore for a while. They were full of that bright, breezy optimism inseparable from the British tar.
