Harrogate Herald - 27th July 1917
W H Breare letter
With Brady came his youngest brother, Private K
Brady. He is only 19 now, but has been in the Army six months on
this side of the water. He is in the King's Own Yorkshire Light
Infantry. There are quite a number of Harrogate boys in this lot.
For instance, there is Reynard, from Killinghall Moor, and G
of Starbeck. Private K Brady holds the cross guns for marksmanship
in rifle shooting. A very good record for a boy of 19, is it not?
Harrogate Herald - 5th December 1917
Private G Holmes writes :
Thanks for the parcel you sent, which I
received last night. The socks are very nice. They are just the
things that we need out here, as we often have wet feet. There is
only one boy in our company that comes from Harrogate, and he gets
the Herald every week which you send him. I have met one or two
Harrogate boys while I have been out. Some were at the Beechwood
Hotel in 1915. There are also other boys who do not belong to
Harrogate in my battalion, but have been billeted there, and they
all speak well of the town.
