Lance Corporal Robert Fraser

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 3rd January 1917

Roll of Honour

The sad news was received on Friday last that Robert Fraser, aged 20 years, second son of Mr R Fraser, tailor, of Glebe Road and Parliament Street, Harrogate, was killed in action on December 20th. He belonged to the machine gun section, late Cameron Highlanders. The information is all the more pathetic as it is just over a year since his brother, Douglas Fraser, was killed.

Letters

W Broadbank says : 

I very much regret to see poor young Fraser has been killed. I am in the same regiment as he was, but never came across him. I knew both his brother Doug, and him in civil life. Will you, through your paper, express my deepest sympathy to his parents? We are having some nippy weather out here, but still it is not so bad but than we can keep ourselves warm, what with comforts and other things. I think the Germans are about spent out, as the prisoners look physical wrecks and are very hungry when they come in. We just keep smiling and keep a big heart, as we know that there is only one team in it now. I think this is all at present. Again thanking you for the paper.
