Second Lieutenant Charles Eric Duncan, of the Rifle Brigade, younger son of Mr and Mrs David Duncan, Crookleigh, Franklin Road, Harrogate, was killed in action on the 24th November. He joined the Leeds University OTC in July, 1915, and received his commission in the Royal Fusiliers in December following. He served in Dublin during the rising, and was afterwards transferred to the Rifle Brigade, and went out to the Front in August last. He was a member of the Harrogate Old Boys' Rugby Union Football Club.


Harrogate Herald - 2nd May 1917

Wednesday Gossip

My attention has been drawn through some work done by R Ackrill to a number of beautiful portraits in oils of well-known Harrogate young men who have made the supreme sacrifice, which have been executed by Mrs Varney,[Mr and Mrs A Varney, artists, 20 Park Parade] of the Park Parade Studios, Harrogate. The soldiers include Second Lieutenant Leonard Dawson, Second Lieutenant C E Duncan, Private Reginald Jones, Private J Croft, &c. In each case excellent likenesses have been secured, and the work does the artist infinite credit. Mrs Varney is making a speciality of this class of work, producing a high-class picture at a moderate figure.
