Harrogate Herald - 9th May 1917

Pioneer H Daniel writes :

I have been transferred from the 5th West Yorks to the RE. I have heard the boys are not far from here, so I hope to come across some of my pals before long. We are having some sport with the flying machines tonight. One of the Germans has managed to come over our trenches, but I don't know whether he will get back again or not. If you have a safety razor on hand I would like one very much. We are having some grand weather now. Wishing you and the Herald every success. There are only two Harrogate lads in the company, myself and Pioneer Dobson, but would like putting on your list. (we have done so - Ed)


Harrogate Herald - 30th May 1917

Pioneer H Daniel says : 

I have received the safety razor in good condition, and written Mrs Murray to thank her for it. I got your letter and Driver G Beer's address, and wrote him tonight. There are two Harrogate men billeted next camp to us - Sapper J Smith and Patsy Donovan, but I hard that Donovan has gone done to the base with a fractured arm. Thanking you again for what you have done for me, and wishing you and the Herald every success.
