Second Lieutenant J W S Hird

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 7th February 1917

Roll of Honour

We regret to announce that an official intimation has been received of the death of Second Lieutenant J W S Hird, North Staffordshire Regiment, who has died of wounds. He was the eldest son of the late William Waistell Hird, of Middlesborough, and of Mrs Hird, of Cleveland House, Cornwall Road, Harrogate. He was home on leave not long ago, and afterwards went out to Mesopotamia, where he was fatally wounded in the recent fighting. He volunteered for service in September, 1914, and joined the Public Schools Battalion, and was subsequently gazetted to a commission in the North Staffordshire Regiment in the following year. He was esteemed and very popular amongst his many Harrogate friends, who will regret his demise, which is more sad owing to the fact that he was engaged to Miss Parkins, of Crestcote, Harrogate, at the time of his death.
