Sapper Arthur Lacey

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 2nd May 1917

Chats with Wounded in Hospital

Sapper Arthur Lacey, of the Royal Engineers, is in the Grove House Hospital with the loss of a leg. He was on the Somme front, and was just going into the trenches in connection with some work there the engineers were engaged on, when a high explosive shell burst near. His leg was amputated in hospital in France. From there he went into Beckett's Park Hospital, and then came to Harrogate, where he is going on capitally.
