Harrogate Herald - 8th December 1915

Private J W Lamb, 10th West Yorks Regiment, writes : 

I received your paper all right and it is nice to read it on these dark, cold nights. I must tell you we are having some very hard frosts just now. It is very bad travelling with the mules on the roads here, as the best are not as good as the worst in England. The road we go to the trenches is very dangerous. We have had s few of our men knocked out of late with stray shots. We have a few Harrogate lads in our Battalion, and all of them seem happy. I must close now. Wishing your paper every success.
