Private Harry Horner

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 1st August 1917

Private G Slack writes : 

I was sorry to notice the announcement in your last paper about Mr Searle and Mr Horner, as I knew them both well for years. I am sorry for both their wives with each three children to look after. They have something on at this time of unrest. Oh, there is one thing I would like to ask of you. I could make out the address of Mrs King, who gave you the cards for me. If you could oblige me with it I will write her and thank her for them. I have been in the line for a few days and had a pretty warm time. They caught a few of our boys this time. I have had the pleasure of seeing one of the German planes hit with a shell, and it came down on our left. [The address of Mrs King is 48 Unity Grove, Harrogate - Ed.]
