Private Bernard Hall

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 6th June 1917

Roll of Honour

Private Bernard Hall (Royal Canadian Regiment), son of George H Hall, 11 Poplar Grove, Bilton, was killed in action on the 9th April. The Church of England Chaplain, in a letter to the widow, says that first of all he was reported wounded on the above date, and subsequently that he was killed, and his body was recovered for burial. The clergyman explains that in such a big battle as that of the 9th it was possible for the first report to be incorrect, but was afraid there could be no error as to the last, as each man carried two identification discs, one of which was taken off and the other left on the body. Private Hall went to Canada about five years ago, where he enlisted, and came over five weeks before Christmas, and went to France about this time.
