Second Lieutenant Oliver L R Dunley

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 26th December 1917

W H Breare letter

Second Lieutenant Oliver L R Dunley, 2nd Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders, is missing. He went out in the company of two others to inspect some outposts, and the party has not been heard of since. It is confidently believed that he had wandered into the German lines, thinking them his own, and is a prisoner. But there is no definite news, and friends are anxious. Will you do your best to obtain information respecting him, and let me know at the earliest moment? If you hear anything, and can send me a brief cable and let me know the cost, I will at once remit. The party included the Lieutenant, his Captain, and, I believe, a Corporal. It is quite possible that one of you may obtain information from a captured German prisoner. I do not make this request in a more urgent form, because I know you and any of you do all you can in this matter. The significant thing which warrants the supposition of his being a prisoner is that no word has been heard from any of them.

Roll of Honour

Second Lieutenant Oliver L R Dunley, 2nd Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders, is missing. I am most anxious to ascertain if he is a prisoner in Germany. Will any reader who is writing to a prisoner in Germany kindly ask him to make enquiries and ascertain if Lieutenant Dunley is in his camp? I am most anxious to ascertain good tidings of him because the anxiety of his friends. Will those who read this kindly pass on the request to anyone they know who is writing to a prisoner in Germany?

W H Breare letter

Don't trouble any more about Second Lieutenant Oliver Dunley, 2nd Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders. You remember he was missing, and I felt confident that he was a prisoner in Germany, but I wanted to know for his friends' sake. I rejoice to say a telegram has come from Switzerland saying he is a prisoner in Germany and well.
