Private Garbutt


Harrogate Herald - 9th May 1917

Wednesday Gossip

The friends of Trooper Wright (Derbyshire Yeomanry) will be interested to hear that Mrs C Garbutt, of Station Parade, Harrogate, has had a letter from her son, who is with the Salonica Forces, to whom she sends the Herald every week. He saw the note and photo of Trooper Wright referring to his being missing, and has made enquiries of other men in the regiment, and as far as he can gather Wright was wounded and taken prisoner on the 20th August on the plain. His company, he says, was in action on the day in question, and the Bulgars took some prisoners. Pte Garbutt asks his mother not to forget to let Wright's friends know, and she desires to do so through our columns. This news will, doubtless, be welcome and consoling to Wright's friends.


Harrogate Herald - 1st November 1917

W Farndale writes from Salonica : 

I have received razor safely, and wish to thank you very much for it. We are still in the same place - nothing to see only mountains in every direction. I ran across another Harrogate boy a few weeks ago, son of Mr Garbutt furniture dealer, who is in the RAMC.
