Sapper G Dawes


Harrogate Herald - 29th December 1915

The committee of Knaresborough ladies who organised a Xmas gift fund for sending parcels to local soldiers and sailors with the expeditionary forces and on the high seas have been deeply gratified and richly rewarded with a shoal of appreciative letters received by Miss J M Alexander (hon. secretary) from the boys on service for King and country. We have pleasure in inserting the first batch, and others will be given in subsequent issues :

December 17th - Dear Friends, Just a line to thank you for the parcel which you have been so kind to send me. It was a great surprise when I returned to camp and found it waiting for me. I am sending you a card, which I hope will please you, and believe me, I am, yours truly, Sapper G Dawes.
