"Micky" Dawson


Harrogate Herald - 23rd May 1917

Private A Luty, asking for a wristlet watch, says :

I can assure you time is a valuable thing in the trenches, and it is very awkward being without. There is another Harrogate man here in the company, whom I daresay you will know very well - "Micky" Dawson, the newsagent. He reported sick the other morning and was sent right away to hospital. His complaint was trench fever.

W H Breare letter

Corporal G C Sawbridge called Monday when on last leave. He has quite recovered from his wound that brought him to St George's, by a fortunate transfer, and is looking really well. He hopes to get back to his old unit amongst his good comrades. In the camp at home where he has been lately were Noddings and Mickey Dawson. Noddings has been in hospital with nephritis and will not be going out yet. It will be Dawson's first trip out when he goes. Sawbridge sends his remembrances to his friends at the Front.

W H Breare letter

Last week I put the cart before the horse. I mentioned Corporal Sawbridge as calling on me, and referred to Noddings and Micky Dawson. It was Dawson who had been in hospital and was in France from December, 1916, until May. Noddings has not been out yet.
