Harrogate Herald - 31st January 1917

Driver W H Hall says : 

I saw in last week's Herald that an old workmate of mine had been killed in action. It was Arthur Johnson, and my deepest sympathy is with his wife and children in their sad bereavement. He was a good mate, and those who knew him always spoke of him as a good friend. I saw one Harrogate lad today. It was Fred Tilford, of the Royal Engineers. He was in good health and looked well. I will ring off, again thanking you and wishing yourself and the Herald every success.
