J Joy


Harrogate Herald - 19th September 1917

W H Breare letter

Next I had a visit from two other boys, who came together : Pte George Gledhill and Signaller J Crossley.

Signaller J Crossley lives at 17 Poplar Grove, Bilton. His family consists of a wife and one child. He is the son of Mrs Crossley of 6 Waterloo Street. S H Jennings, who was missing April 28th, at Arras, was a pal of Crossleys'. Jennings' father worked for a number of years at Newby's. Crossley's last affair was at Hargicourt. On one occasion he met J Joy at Arras, who had just come off a route march. Joy was in the best of health. This was some time ago.
