Bombardier B Dale


Harrogate Herald - 7th November 1917

W H Breare letter

Many years ago, when I was living at Harlow Car, one of our gardeners was named Dale. I have just had a visit from his son, Bombardier B Dale, of a siege battalion. He went back from leave yesterday. Been out 15 months, and this was his first leave. His home is 33 Willow Grove. In July he was wounded and had five weeks in hospital. When he set out on leave he came out of action from that locality of the last attack, proceeded straight down the lines and home. Before the war he worked for Mr Rennie as head gardener. Dale looked well and seemed to be enjoying his holiday. I was sorry that I had not more time with him, but it so happened that just at the moment he called I had to telephone over the Division news of the opening of a new offensive. However, I dropped that work while I had a brief chat with him.
