Harrogate Herald - 9th May 1917

The following are men who have sent us the Army post-card briefly stating that they are well and have received papers and parcels, or whose letters contain views that have repeatedly been expressed by other correspondents, but show their friends that they are all right :

Harrogate Herald - 17th October 1917

Roll of Honour

Mr & Mrs J Knowles, 58 Dragon Avenue, Harrogate (formerly of Birstwith), have received official notice that their son, Lance Corporal Hubert Knowles, died on September 16th at a casualty clearing station in France from wounds received the same day by a bomb from an enemy aeroplane. Before the war he was manager of one of the Huddersfield branch shops of the Argenta Meat Company. Lance Corporal Knowles joined the Forces last November and went out to France in February. Their youngest son, Driver C Knowles, has been with the RFA in France since January, 1916, and their son-in-law, Private S Ellis, has been missing since May 3rd. Any news of him would be gratefully received by his wife, Mrs Ellis, 51 Cecil Street, Bilton, Harrogate.


Harrogate Herald - 27th February 1918

Driver C Knowles says : 

It is very nice indeed for the boys out here to keep in touch with the old town through your paper. I can assure you it is nearly as good as a walk round the town, as we get to know so many things that are taking place. There are no more Harrogate boys near me, but there are one or two from different parts of Yorkshire, who are interested in h, and they seem to enjoy the Harrogate Herald as much as I do myself. They soon remind me if I do not hand it round as soon as I have finished it.
