Sergeant Harold Franklyn Dawson


Harrogate Herald - 23rd May 1917

W H Breare letter

I have one job, at least, for my kind friend in Boulogne, and that is to call on Harold Frankling Dawson, in the K Ward, No 8 Stationary Hospital, Boulogne. Will my friend send me some news of this man to comfort his people? And now, boys, I will turn to other work to make up arrears and be ready for Wednesday. I will talk to you again on Monday.


Harrogate Herald - 28th November 1917

Roll of Honour

The many friends of Sergeant Harold Franklyn Dawson, son of Mr & Mrs H Dawson, of Kent Road, Harrogate, will regret to hear that he has again been wounded, this time in the groin. It is only three weeks or so since he left Harrogate for France (for the third time this year), after going through a special course of musketry and other training in this country. He joined up in October, 1914, when 17 years of age, and has graduated from a Beechwood Boys to being a member of the famous Byng Boys, who have made history during the recent sensational advance, or "walk-over", as Sergeant Dawson calls it, on the Western Front, when so many of our local boys distinguished themselves. His present address is Colliton House Hospital (VAD), Dorchester, where he is likely to remain for some considerable time.
