Private John Hackney


Harrogate Herald - 6th June 1917

Roll of Honour

A fortnight ago we announced that Corporal John Hackney, son of Mr & Mrs George Hackney, of Glasshouses, of the West Yorks, was in hospital suffering from wounds. Two letters were received from his companions saying he was going on very nicely, one saying that he would be in England in a few days. A telegram was, however, received on Monday saying Corporal Hackney had died in the Canadian General Hospital at Etaples in France on the 26th. Corporal Hackney is married, with one child. He was 36 years of age and one of the oldest Volunteers and belonged to the West Yorks Territorials. Mr & Mrs Hackney also have a son and an adopted son in the Army, and both are in Salonica. Much sympathy is felt for the bereaved mother.
