Jack Knowles

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 24th October 1917

W H Breare letter

I have just heard of the death of two well-known Harrogate men who have fallen in action. Jack Knowles, son of the late William Knowles, butcher, who carries on his father's business at the same spot in Parliament Street, has lost his only son. I have not the particulars at present, but if I learn anything further you shall know through the columns of the Herald. We are feeling very sad on Mr & Mrs Knowles' account and on our own.

 

Harrogate Herald - 7th November 1917

W H Breare letter

It is Sunday morning, damp and misty. I have just been talking over the telephone to Jack Knowles, father of that dear lad who has given his life in battle. Mr Knowles read me a very beautiful letter he received from the officer commanding our lamented young friend's platoon. You will find it somewhere in the Herald today, so be sure and read what will be a comfort to everyone who has lost a relative in the Army.
