LCpl Arnold E Day, 1/5th West Yorks, of Wheatlands, Harrogate.


Harrogate Herald - 21st July 1915

No fewer than four Harrogate lads have fallen in action this week : Lance Corporal Arnold [Ellis] Day; Lance Corporal Kelley [Probably Fred Kelly], 5th West Yorks; Private W A Haley, 5th West Yorks; Private J [John] Brown, 1/5th West Yorks. Their portraits appear on our picture page.


Claro Times - 23rd July 1915

In our last issue we were in the happy position of stating that no further news of casualties among Harrogate men had reached us, but within a few hours of publication arrived the information that Lance Corporal Fred Kelley and Lance Corporal A E Day, both of the 5th West Yorkshires, had died as a result of wounds received in action.

Lance Corporal Arnold E Day was the only son of Mr and Mrs E J Day, of Leeds Road, and previous to joining the 5th West Yorks last September he was engaged on the literary staff of a Bradford newspaper. He was the first Bradford journalist to enlist, and had been in the Front several weeks when he received his fatal wound in the head.
