Eshelby

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 26th September 1917

Roll of Honour

A letter from a lieutenant of the Northumberland Fusiliers to Mrs Eshelby, 41 South Beech Avenue, Starbeck, announced that her son has died after being badly wounded whilst carrying wounded men from the front trench. The officer says : He volunteered for the work, which made him one of the best in the company. He was buried at the village of ------, and a cross marks his grave. He is missed by all the platoon and rest of the company. He was always cheerful under adverse conditions. The sympathy of the regiment is sent to the bereaved parents.
