Harrogate Herald - 19th September 1917

W H Breare letter

I interrupted my dinner that day so that I shouldn't turn away three soldiers from the Front on leave who had called to see me. It was a merry trio I conducted to my office, in order to make a few notes.

The third soldier was Gunner John Herrington, of the RFA, son of Mrs Herrington, 3 Denmark Terrace. He has been out for 15 months and was wounded at St Eloi on the 21st May. When he came to see me he was just out of hospital on ten days' sick leave and then was for his depot. Gunner A Brain was with him in his division, and he, too, is now on leave. He sent a nice message to me by Herrington. Brain is a Mons hero, one of the original who went out in August 1914. I mentioned some time ago that Herrington had three wounds. All these boys were looking well and they were jolly as sand boys. We had a merry meeting.

Gunner J Herrington, writing from Italy, says : 

This is a very pretty country, and we get a good reception from the Italians in every town we go through. Wishing you and the Herald staff the compliments of the season.
