Harrogate Herald - 7th March 1917

W H Breare letter

I have sent Bandmaster Thompson, who is in Egypt, some paper and envelopes. I will tell you the reason. I got a letter from his wife the other day giving me news of her husband, and she told me he was only allowed one envelope a week. Hornsey and I immediately set about arranging a parcel of notepaper for him, and off it went. I am sorry to say that Thompson's wife has been ill since October. She had a relapse on Friday of last week, and her daughter was obliged to give up the work she was engaged in to attend to her. Under her care, I hope Mrs Thompson will soon recover. The husband out where he is has met a friend who used to be in the Ripon Post Office. His name was Lee. The latter now belongs to the Australian Forces, and I am told "thinks the world of your letter to the boys, and wishes to be remembered to you". I am delighted to hear of Lee, and if he sees this column I hope he will accept my kind regards. It would, indeed, be a pleasure to see him in Harrogate. Perhaps he will have the chance. If he does I hope he will not forget to call on me.

 

Harrogate Herald - 28th November 1917

W H Breare letter

You will remember Mr Harold Fortune, solicitor, son of Mr Charles Fortune, JP? He is in the Army now, but in just what capacity I do not know. He called to see me the other day, but unfortunately I was not visible. I understand from one of my people who saw him that with him is Odam, who used to be at Aston's, the stockbroker; a man named Lee, and Enderby, son of Mr Enderby, of the Grand garage.
