Harrogate Herald - 21st November 1917


Gunner H Crosthwaite, writing from General Military Hospital, Edmonton, says : 

I am pleased to say I am going on very well at present, and have now got eight of my wounds healed up. The doctor came to examine my foot last week to see if it was fit to travel, but I am sorry to say he will not let me come until after Christmas. When I go get home, I shall come and see you, so as to thank you personally for sending me the paper so regularly while serving in France. I always look forward to it coming, as it always let me know how things were at home, also how my chums were going on. I was very sorry to hear of the death of Private W Wright, as he was an old school mate of mine, and was always cheerful. I am sure his parents have my deepest sympathy.
