Private Charles E Hutchinson


Harrogate Herald - 18th July 1917

Private Charles E Hutchinson, East Yorks, youngest son of Mr and Mrs Thomas Hutchinson, 42 Silverfields Road, Harrogate, who was reported missing as far back as April 23rd, has written home to say that he is a prisoner in Germany. The letter, which came on Saturday, was a great relief to his anxious parents, who had made every possible enquiry with no result. A comrade, "Teddy" Howell, who joined up with him, informed the parents that he was missing, and a letter from his CO brought nothing more definite. Private Hutchinson was in training at Harrogate with the Yorkshire Hussars, but later he was transferred to the East Yorks Infantry. In the letter home he says he is fit and well and sends kind regards to all his friends. His brother, Private W Hutchinson, has been out in Mesopotamia since November, 1915, with the Royal Engineers, and at last accounts was in a rest camp at Baghdad.

Wednesday Gossip

Trooper C Hutchinson, son of Mr and Mrs Hutchinson, Silverfields, Harrogate, has reached home after 20 months' captivity in Hunland. All that time he had no meat, and he and his comrades counted themselves lucky if they got a boiling of potato parings. He looks no worse, however, for his enforced abstinence.
