Harrogate Herald - 21st February 1917

W H Breare

I had an interesting visit from an Australian soldier, Sergeant F B Spicer, who called to see me whilst on leave in Harrogate, the first he has had in 21 months' service. Spicer is a typical Australian, strong, self-contained, and showing no trace of the strenuous experience in Gallipoli and later work in France and on the Somme. He is an artificer in the horse transport. It was good to be under the influence of his buoyant optimism. Many of you lads know very well my friend, Kitching, the well-known cornet soloist of the North. Kitching is serving his country in France, and Spicer is a very old friend of his.
