Harrogate Herald - 28th March 1917

Private S Dawson writes :

I hope you will excuse me writing this begging letter. I saw by your paper you have been the means of doing so much good to the Harrogate men out here. I am a Killinghall man myself and in great need of a "Primus" stove. I thought perhaps some of your readers would be pleased to supply one, as my work for a long time has carried me a long way from my company, and it has been rather awkward as regards cooking my food and getting hot water for making tea, as I go to places where fires are not allowed. I have a Harrogate man with me. His name is J Pacey. I do not know if you know him or not. We came across each other quite accidentally. He is now my mate on the lorry.
