Private F Drury


Harrogate Herald 17th January 1917

The following are men who have sent us the Army post-card briefly stating that they are well and have received papers and parcels, or whose letters contain views that have repeatedly been expressed by other correspondents, but show their friends that they are all right :

Harrogate Herald - 18th April 1917

Private F Drury says :

Post seems to come so irregular now, but the papers turn up well. I have only had one a few days behind time. It brings us both good news and the Roll of Honour, which goes down badly when you see that lads whom you know have gone under. We had a real summer's day on Easter Sunday, if it was as fine with you. We were saying in the afternoon what it would be like in the Valley Gardens, and for a while forgot there was a war on. There was more than one football match near us, and it would have been hard to realise we were at war had it not been the bark of a few guns and the aircraft being shelled. I am pretty sure next year we shall be at home. Hope this finds you all in Blighty in the pink, as it leaves me. Wishing your paper every success.
