Harrogate Herald - 4th July 1917

W H Breare letter

Just as I am Dictaphoning to you I have received a letter from Mrs Waddington, 7 Craven Street, to say that her son will not require the Herald for the happy reason that he is coming home for a commission. At the same time I have had a visit from Private J Jackson's sister, who has called to show me a notice to the effect that her brother has been wounded and is missing. This happened on the 3rd of May. He was with the 31st Battalion Canadians, and news such as this first goes to Canada, thence to England; so there is some delay in obtaining information of casualties to Colonial soldiers here. Meantime Jackson's people have been anxiously waiting. I trust it will be discovered that Jackson is a prisoner in Germany, or that he has lost his way and strayed to another unit; or lost amongst the hospitals - anything but dead.
