Corporal A Hall

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 4th July 1917

W H Breare letter

Mrs Sherwood , of Craydon Street, [Should this be Craven Street?] has just called to give me the happy intelligence that her brother, who was missing, Corporal A Hall, is a prisoner at Dulmen, Germany. He has been missing since the 3rd of May. So there is one more family made happy.

 

Harrogate Herald - 19th December 1917

W H Breare letter

It is Sunday morning, and when I got up I found about an inch of snow on the ground and fine flakes still falling. When I looked through the letters this morning there were six postcards from prisoners of war in Germany. Sometimes these come in batches after considerable delay. With every parcel that goes is enclosed a reply postcard containing the date of the parcel sent and these queries : "Have you received your parcel regularly? (2) Were contents in good condition? (3) Is your address as shown on the other side correct? If not, please enter your correct address below". By these postcards we know whether the boys receive the food or not. You would like to hear who those cards were from, so I will tell you. There were two from Private H Wood, 27791, 16th West Yorks, one of which was dated October 17th, the other October 20th; from Corporal A Hall, 200860, 2/5th West Yorks, there were two dated October 2nd, October 6th. The dates I have mentioned relate to the time when the parcels were sent from this country. The date of despatch of Hall's cards was November 5th the lot of them. The date when Private Wood sent his two cards were October 17th and 20th. Then there were two cards from Private T Lang, 2 Company, West Yorks. The parcels they acknowledged were sent September 10th and September 27th. These postcards were written October 28th. We receive such cards regularly. I mention these because they have just come to hand.
