Harrogate Herald - 4th April 1917
Chats with the wounded
Among the Harrogate lads wounded is B Ingham,
who will be remembered as an operator for several years at the
Picture House in Cambridge Street. He is in hospital.
"Benny", as he was familiarly called, was known to a wide
circle of Harrogate people, who will wish him a full recovery.
Harrogate Herald - 2nd January 1918
Chats with the Wounded
Ben Ingham, of Harrogate, who joined the signal section,
has received his discharge from the Army after being in several
hospitals following on a shrapnel wound in the leg. He is back in
Harrogate and is detailed for outdoor treatment at the baths, in the
hope that it will get the use of the limb back. The bullet injured
the main nerve in the leg, and among other things deprived him of
the use of his toes, and though time has remedied this to some
extent, one of the toes is still obdurate, and this has rendered the
foot useless for further active service, hence his discharge. Ben
Ingham was for a number of years operator at the Picture House
in Cambridge Street. He carries on his watch-chain the shrapnel
bullet extracted from his leg as a grim souvenir of the war.
