Gunner A Gledhill


Harrogate Herald - 22nd August 1917

W H Breare letter

Gunner A Gledhill, of the RFA, has been in. he is the son of Mr T W and Mrs Gledhill, 81 Mayfield Grove. The father used to drive for the late Dr Atkinson. Gledhill at one time was one of the three Harrogate men who were pals in the same unit. One of them, E Johnson, of New Park, was killed at Messines. The other was Driver G T Horner, who is all right. The latter's father was at one time fireman at the Royal Baths. Gledhill was very well, and highly enjoying his leave.

Gunner A Gledhill writes : 

I got that parcel last week which you sent to France for me. They had sent it straight back to London, and I got it quite safe in the end. I must thank you for your kindness. The cards have come in very handy for passing the nights on. hey don's look after us here as they do at home.

W H Breare letter

Another man invalided home is Gunner A Gledhill, Royal Field Artillery, son of Mr and Mrs Thomas Gledhill. The father formerly drove for the late Dr Atkinson. Gledhill is suffering from the effects of mustard gas. He will not be going out for some time, if ever again. He was in at Paschendaele Ridge, and before that at the Somme, Anore, Messines, and Nieuport. He came across the son of Alderman Sheffield, who is in the Army Service Corps, but he did not know his initials. Gledhill spoke of G Horner, 1 Mayfield Terrace, who last august was badly kicked by a mule. Horner has had two accidents, but was alright at last accounts.
