Sapper Kidner

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 15th December 1915

Sapper Kidner, of the Royal Engineers, is in the Heatherdene Hospital with eye trouble. This is believed to have arisen from the use of water for washing in at the Front, from which only goes to show how careful the men must be. Orders are continually issued that the men must not drink water unless it has first been boiled. No soldier could drink unboiled water without knowing the risks he runs. That must be still more obvious when, as in this case, the outward application of unbilled water will set up blood poisoning. The eye trouble may necessitate an operation, and, be that as it may, Sapper Kidner is receiving the best of attention.
