Private C Horner


Harrogate Herald - 4th April 1917

Private C Horner writes : 

Have received the parcel containing the shears and scissors, and I am writing to thank you very much for the same. They are real good ones and just what I wanted, and have come at an opportune moment, as the Battalion is out of the line at the present time and have plenty of time to make good use of them. Have had good reports from home about the way the war is going on, and we are all in good hopes of soon being back in Blighty, when I may get an opportunity of thanking you personally for the utmost of trouble you have taken over this request of mine. Am writing this well behind the line, where we are billeted in dugouts and getting quite used to living in semi-darkness. This is quite a good rest for the Battalion after the strenuous time we had in the line, but we are working hard now making roads and railways, over which we hope to advance. In closing, may I thank you once again for your kindness and wish your Harrogate and Knaresborough papers continues success.
