Trooper Arthur Lawrence


Harrogate Herald - 9th May 1917

Wednesday Gossip

I have despatched this week three golf clubs and one dozen ball to Driver W Smithson; safety razor to Trooper A Lawrence; playing cards to Pte W Parkinson; a parcel of woollen comforts to Gunner J Schofield; safety razor to Bugler W H Kirk.


Harrogate Herald - 30th May 1917

A Lawrence writes : 

I now find tm to send a few lines to thank you for the safety razor that I received quite safely. I am delighted with it, and I shall find it very useful out here; and will you please thank Mr Shires for me? I think it is very kind of him, and I hope the time won't be long before I can come and thank you both personally. I should like you to send me the Herald if it is not asking too much of you. I met another Harrogate man who has been sent to the Somerset's. He lives in Silverfields, so I can pass the paper on to him.
