John K Friend


Harrogate Herald - 27th June 1917

W H Breare letter

We are losing another valued member of our staff in the person of our Boroughbridge correspondent, Mr John K Friend. He has not been called up, but is volunteering. I am glad to say that his duties are in this respect going to be taken over by the young lady whom he hopes before long to make his wife. Rather nice this, in both respects, isn't it? It is another case of a woman taking up important work to replace a man for the Army. I am sure she will succeed, for she has already had some experience in journalism. I hope the Boroughbridge people will help her to gather news.
