W H Breare letter

Private N Rogers, of the West Yorks., has been home on leave and called. He is one of the Herald staff and presided over our Despatch Office. The only other members of the staff with him are John Lee, of the bookbindery, and A Robinson, all the rest having either been wounded or transferred.

 

Harrogate Herald - 26th September 1917

W H Breare letter

Last week I had Driver John Whitehead, ASC, in to see me. He is of the 49th Division, and was due to return last Friday. He had been out 30 months and was lucky enough to see his brother Jim Whitehead the Friday before he came on leave and Sergeant Calverley. Whitehead was a joiner for Raworth Brothers, with whom he served his apprenticeship. On one occasion he saw a regiment containing lots of Harrogate boys, just going on a route march. Amongst those whom he knew were Draper, Rogers, and John Lee, the two latter of the Herald staff. Another of Whitehead's brothers, Bob, is in the ASC, but at present in Ireland. Both brothers were members of the West Park FC. My caller has had no wounds and been in good health all the time, so far.

 

Harrogate Herald - 24th October 1917

W H Breare letter

On Friday afternoon I had a visit from Sergeant Wade, of the WYs, son of Mr & Mrs Wade, of 33 Wayfield Terrace. Wade was highly delighted to meet, whilst at home, Newstead, who had been discharged. It seems Newstead will have to go through another operation in about 18 months, which is a long time to look forward to. Swires and Waring, of Pateley, were in Wade's platoon. He had met Regimental Sergeant Major Curry and Driver Medd. John Lee, of our staff, is in his battalion. Wade looks well and was in good spirits. The latter, naturally, seeing he was at home.
