Petty Officer Dobson


Harrogate Herald - 1st August 1917

W H Breare letter

I have heard a good deal about Telegraphist J A Capstick, who is in the Navy, through his father. I am happy to say the lad called in to see me the other day, whilst he was on thirteen days leave. Amongst other things he told me was that Petty Officer Dobson is a gun layer in his lot, and that he, Capstick, has been on board ship for two years uninterruptedly. He is the son of Mr & Mrs Edward Capstick, of 16 Glebe Road, Harrogate. He has a brother (Edward, the third son), who is in Salonica, and his eldest brother Ernest is in the REs. Capstick was as breezy and jolly as the rest of our tars, and I had a pleasant time with him.
