Harrogate Herald - 10th January 1917

Sapper H Harrison writes : 

Dear Mr Breare, I just want to thank you for all the past papers. Sorry that I could not get a letter off before, but as I am late for Xmas I hope you will, with all my friends, accept my best wishes for a brighter New Year. Let's all hope that we shall see the end of the war before another Xmas comes around. I saw by my last Herald that the old town was doing its best for the local lads. Well, good luck to all the people and the same to all the boys. As I was marching up to my present abode I passed two chaps that I thought I knew by sight, who worked for the Corporation. I gave one a shout, but as I did not know his name it was just "How do you think Harrogate looks?". He might possibly remember me when he reads this. We had a quiet Christmas - where we are just the usual artillery going. Was wondering how the old town was looking at Xmas. Wish I had been there, but I have it to look forward to, and if everything goes well I think I will see Harrogate sometime in January. Am hoping so at any rate. In closing I will send best wishes for your paper.

 

Harrogate Herald - 20th June 1917

The following are men who have sent us the Army post-card briefly stating that they are well and have received papers and parcels, or whose letters contain views that have repeatedly been expressed by other correspondents, but show their friends that they are all right :
