W Holdsworth


Harrogate Herald - 12th December 1917

Roll of Honour

W Holdsworth, whose wife resides at 34 Regent Avenue, Harrogate, has been a prisoner of war in Germany since 1915. Writing from Hanover to his wife he says he is in the pink, and knowing he has his release to look forward to is doing his best to keep right. Her letters and assurance, he says, help him a great deal, but he could not help laughing when he saw what she said about him settling down in Germany. "Never mind", he concludes, "we shall soon be having the old hymn 'Christians, awake!'" He enquires about the boys, and says what he went through gives him a fellow-feeling.
