Roll of Honour

Harrogate Herald - 2nd January 1918


Acknowledging the Herald, F Stringfellow says : 

It is very nice to know what is going on at home and read the letters from other boys who are out here. I am fortunate in having another Harrogate fellow along with me - Walter Fawcett, of Grove Road - so you can guess we often talk of the old town and the passing events as we read them each week in the Herald. We passed another Harrogate lad the other day when we were on the move - Harry Smith, RGA, of Grove Park Road; had a few passing words. He said he had just returned from leave. We have passed through many ruined villages and towns in our travels, and had some exciting and also interesting experiences. We are having real Christmas weather just now; very keen frosts, and about six inches of snow on the ground. Regret to see so many Harrogate boys in the casualty lists, but hope the New Year will soon see an end to it.
