W Fence

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 9th January 1918

Letters

Sergeant A Palmer writes : 

I received your most welcome gift the day after Xmas. I was pleased to see you had not forgotten me in a Derbyshire regiment. There is only me left out of all the lot which were transferred. I have met many pals I know, and two of them two days before Xmas. They relieved us. One was T Tyreman and the other W Fence. I expect the firm [He worked for Ackrills] has changed a great deal since I last paid a visit. The only chance of getting the news of my pals is through the old paper, which I get sent out each week. I spent my Xmas Day on the march, but hope to have a better New Year. I am very pleased to tell you I have been awarded the Military Medal. Wishing the firm and Herald the best of luck and a prosperous New Year. PS. Please remember me to all my workmates.
