Dick Johnson


Harrogate Herald - 5th September 1917

Corporal G Easton says : 

There are letters in the Herald from someone I know every week, which keep one in touch with the old place. I was sorry to learn that two of my neighbours in Albert Road are in hospital, namely, E Stonehouse and H Johnson, and sincerely hope they will both make a speedy recovery. I knew them well, and remember doing a good few hours' drill alongside H Johnson in the Drill Hall, also on Roscoe's field, with the Volunteers. If either of them read this letter, no doubt hey will be pleased to know that I have had the good fortune to meet Dick Johnson (another neighbour) out here one night about a week ago. I have now been out nine months, and he is the first person whom I have met that I knew. Needless to say we were both delighted to see each other. he is quite well, and in the Motor Transport. I stayed with him most of the evening, and had a good talk. When I left I promised to look him up again, but going to the same place two evenings later I was disappointed to learn thy had moved. I hope you will forgive me for being so long in writing, but really we have been kept terribly busy delivering the goods over to Fritz, and it's been all sleep and work. However, we are getting it a bit easier just now, and the weather is good, quite a welcome change to the kind we had a week ago, when the mud in our gun pits was knee deep.
