Private Fred Gill


Harrogate Herald - 24th February 1915

W H Breare letter

I have just had a post-card from Mrs Gill of Wharfedale Place, Harlow Hill, saying that her son Fred Gill had been wounded in the neck, but is going on "as well as can be expected". He belongs to the 2nd West Yorkshires and is in No 2 Stationary Hospital. I have to send his Harrogate Herald to the new address, and so I will say to him, "Well done, Gill! You have been in it and we are all proud of you at home. It is a relief that at the time we hear of your wound, we also hear you are going on all right. If the first message had come to us without the other we should have worried about you. Now we shall look forward to a handshake, in the streets of Harrogate very soon".
