Harrogate Herald 1st August 1917

W H Breare letter

You've heard me talk of Drury, who was an errand boy in our establishment before he went to the war? He is the son of Mr & Mrs Drury, Tower Street. Well, he is in the band, and has been fortunate to be attached to the staff. He came on leave last Friday night and returns tomorrow (Wednesday). Has met one of Hanley's, fruiterer's, men, who is stationed about a sixth of a mile off, and there is a Ripon lad in the next camp to him, also a lot of Knaresborough boys. Another Ripon lad named Leetham wished Drury to remember him to his people. Drury saw him when Leetham was going away with a draft. Being in the band, Drury was playing his comrade off.
