Harrogate Herald - 16th May 1917

W H Breare letter

Just before leaving Stanley Laycock. Of RNAS, gave me a call. He is the younger son of the late Mr T and Mrs Laycock, of Harrogate. There was a tinge of sadness in his visit, as he had been brought home by the death of his uncle, who passed away on Sunday morning at 7 o'clock. Stanley's brother, Reff, it will be remembered, was over from France a short while ago, and was unable to get leave again. Stanley is engaged in chasing German submarines, having joined the Navy for four years since the war began, and has nearly finished two years service. He joined up with young Dixon, son of Mr F W Dixon, the ex-Borough Waterworks Engineer. Stanley has the bright and breezy air characteristic of the sailor, and looks remarkably well.
