Harrogate Herald - 26th September 1917

W H Breare letter

Last week I had Driver John Whitehead, ASC, in to see me. He is of the 49th Division, and was due to return last Friday. He had been out 30 months and was lucky enough to see his brother Jim Whitehead the Friday before he came on leave and Sergeant Calverley. Whitehead was a joiner for Raworth Brothers, with whom he served his apprenticeship. On one occasion he saw a regiment containing lots of Harrogate boys, just going on a route march. Amongst those whom he knew were Draper, Rogers, and John Lee, the two latter of the Herald staff. Another of Whitehead's brothers, Bob, is in the ASC, but at present in Ireland. Both brothers were members of the West Park FC. My caller has had no wounds and been in good health all the time, so far.
