Private A Horsfall


Harrogate Herald - 2nd May 1917

Chats with the Wounded in Hospital

Private A Horsfall, of the Royal Marines, is in the St Nicholas Hospital suffering from the effects of septic poisoning contracted on the West front. He was in the fighting in he Somme area, and, though things were quiet at the time, they lay for forty-eight hours in a shell hole. Private Horsfall had blistered feet at the time, and it is supposed that the cold struck in this way, and set up blood poisoning. This was just before they got Grandecourt. He was out at the Front about five months. He is now making a good recovery.
