Lance Corporal J Dobson


Harrogate Herald - 22nd December 1915

Lance Corporal J Dobson writes :

I was very much interested when reading you issue of the Herald for December 15th. I happened to notice Private R Jackson's statement about the narrow escapes of some of the 5th West Yorks at the Front, and as I am one of the chaps who was injured in the second incident to which he referred, I though I would drop you a line or two. The number of coincidences and narrow escapes in this great struggle are indeed wonderful. Only the other day I met a lad out of my own platoon in this hospital who I thought was in the trenches. I am not a Harrogate chap, but I have not forgotten the splendid week we had amongst the Harrogate people during November 1914, and I wish you and your numerous body of readers a happy Xmas.
