Harrogate Herald - 10th October 1917

W H Breare letter

I mentioned Fawcett, an old member of the original Harrogate Volunteers, who went out to Australia or New Zealand, and who has been fighting in France. From a private letter I learn that Fawcett is missing, and nothing as yet has come from careful enquiries. He was a joiner, and, I believe, at one tine worked on the Sheepshanks estate. To call him to mind, I must mention that he was a tall, thin man, with blue eyes, and used to do a good deal of shooting at Birk Crag with the Volunteers. If I mistake not, he often shot with the Harrogate Civilian Rifle Club.


Harrogate Herald - 9th January 1918

W H Breare letter

H B Scholes, of Cecil Street, has had fourteen days' leave, and came to see me. He is on transport work at the moment. He was a member of the Harrogate Male Voice Choir. I am glad to say he found his people at home all well. He had met Walter Little, plasterer, of Pannal Ash; Fawcett, barman at the Ship; Crosthwaite, who was at the Baths; "Major" Dent, son of Mr R Dent, Mayfield Grove. Scholes has never ailed anything, and looks it.
