Sergeant R Jessop

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 17th October 1917

W H Breare letter

Still another caller has been Sergeant R Jessop, who was formerly in our book-keeping department. He left to go to the Co-operative Society. His parents reside at Belfort Cottage, Leeds Road. He has been 17 months out and kept well. You will perhaps know him as a familiar cricketer and footballer. Birkell is the only Harrogate man with him.

 

Harrogate Herald - 9th January 1918

W H Breare letter

In the midst of the duller phases of home experience, it is a relief to see and talk to the boys who call on me. Private Harry Newton, of the Tank Corps, who lives at New Park, is a good example. He is a jolly chap, philosophical, looks on the bright side, so that it does one good to have a chat with him. He returned from leave Friday night. Went out with the first of the Tanks fifteen months ago after three months training. He is now brigaded with Lieutenant Dalby's battalion, who you will recognise as a Harrogate boy. Before enlisting he drove a motor for the Harrogate Gas Co., with whom he has been over twenty years. He came across Sergeant Jessop (formerly of our staff) when on a visit to the tailor. Fred Thompson, Newton's nephew, is in the RC, attached to the 62nd Division. Newton just missed him by a night.
