George Houseman


Harrogate Herald - 17th October 1917

W H Breare letter

Gunner John Reginald Houseman, of the Northumbrian RFA, I am sorry to have to tell you, was killed in action on September 3rd. His people only heard the sad news on October 4th, when the record from the War Office came. He was the second son of Mr & Mrs J Houseman, 21 Chatsworth Place. The deceased and his brother came to see me when they were discharged from hospital, I think, about a year ago. John had got the rust into his hand and septic poisoning followed. George Houseman, the other brother (of the West Yorks), had been wounded on the left wrist and face. He is now in France once more. John Houseman was but 20 years of age, and before he war worked for Messrs Hepworth, clothiers, Beulah Street, Harrogate. I am so sorry for the bereaved parents, other relatives and friends.
