Private Charles Jenkinson

 
 

Harrogate Herald  3d February 1915

W H Breare letter

Harry Jenkinson, son of Mr Jenkinson, of Spofforth, is in the Royal Garrison Artillery. He went into hospital wounded, recovered, was discharged from hospital, and now he is again in with an ingrowing toenail.

Conflicting news comes respecting his brother, Private Charles Jenkinson, of the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry. He was first reported by the War Office, dead. Next that he was wounded and in hospital. Then there was no further news of him. So the Rev Harold Pearson, son of the Rector of Spofforth, went to the War Office and inquired; whereupon he learned that Jenkinson had been killed in action.

W H Breare letter

I mentioned in one of my letters that Private Charles Jenkinson, of Spofforth, was first reported killed then wounded. A later announcement, I regret to say, states that he was killed. His brother was also at the Front, but I trust he is safe and well.
