Private Harry Hobday


Harrogate Herald - 17th January 1917

Private Harry Hobday writes : 

Just a few lines to you, hoping to find you quite well, as it leaves me at present. I have received you paper up to the date 24th December, but no this week's, December 30th, but am looking forward to it, as it is always welcome out here. We all spent a good Christmas under the present circumstances, but it is not like being at home amongst your friends, but I expect we shall all be at home soon now, as I think it possible for the war to finish this Spring. I expect things are very quiet at home now with all the boys being away. I imagine you will have had a busy time this year writing to all the Harrogate boys, as there are a lot of them out here, and they all welcome the Herald when it comes. I think I have said all for this time, wishing you a happy and prosperous New Year, hoping at the same time we shall all be home to see you before long.
