Harrogate Herald - 22nd August 1917

Roll of Honour

Second Lieutenant Richard de Paiva Eddison (Loyal North Lancashire Regiment), elder son of J Arthur Eddison, solicitor, and Mrs Eddison, Langcliffe Avenue, Harrogate, was killed in action on August 4th. He was the eldest grandchild of the late Dr & Mrs Veale, of Roxburgh House, Harrogate. He was born at Knaresborough in 1897, and was educated at Bilton Grange, near Harrogate, Rugby, and Wellington College. On leaving school he was granted a commission, and went to the Front in February last.

The Times report on the engagement says : The brunt of this later fighting has been largely borne by troops of the Lancashire Fusiliers and the Loyal North Lancashires, and the losses they have inflicted on the enemy have been, without exaggeration enormous. Airman, who are the best authorities report that they have never seen the ground so strewn and heaped with German dead as that battlefield.
