Private John Horner


Harrogate Herald - 21st November 1917

W H Breare letter

Leading Seaman George Horner, son of Mrs B Horner, Valley Road, has been ten years in the Navy. For the last 4 years he has been in China. He came to see me the other day, on 21 days' leave. Four years is a long time to be away from home, but he looked well and seemed very cheerful. He met Fred Young, an Oatlands boy, out in China. He has not seen his brother, Private John Horner, who is in France, for some years. The latter has been out 18 months and was home on leave six weeks ago. My visitor would very much like to have seen his brother whilst at home and consulted me as to leave, but as he has had been home on leave so recently as six weeks ago I thought it would not do to ask for another furlough so soon. I am sorry. It would have been nice could he have seen his brother.
