Rifleman C Jackson


Harrogate Herald - 25th April 1917

Roll of Honour

The following letter from his captain explains how Rifleman C Jackson, son of Mr & Mrs William Jackson, Rock House, Hilton Lane, Knaresborough, was wounded. It says : 

Dear Mrs Jackson, I am very sorry to have to inform you that Rifleman C Jackson of this company was yesterday (April 5th) wounded by shrapnel fire whilst on a working party. The piece cut him over the ribs, and, glancing off, made a slight wound in the leg, but neither injury appears to be in any way severe. I hope by now he is comfortably established in hospital. Believe me, yours sincerely, Hugh H Lupton, Captain, 1/8th West Yorks Regt.

He is going on well, and is now at a convalescent camp, Boulogne.
