Eugene Frederick Lenevaitre


From Canadian Military Archives

622560 Eugene Frederick Lenevaitre


Harrogate Herald - 7th February 1917

E F Lenevaitre [There is a Frederick Lenevaitre at 20 Glebe Road] writes : 

Being a Harrogate boy and in receipt of your paper, which I received when in hospital in Dublin and now in this Canadian convalescent camp, I thought you would be pleased to hear from me and to know that your paper is very much appreciated by me. I am being invalided back to Canada shortly, and was given two days leave, which I spent in Harrogate last Sunday and Monday, and would have called in to see you, but you will understand with such a short leave I spent most of my time with my parents. Previous to going out to Canada in 1907 I worked in the Gas Office in James Street for four and a half years. I had a field card from Maurice Rushforth, who was also in he Gas Office with me and went out to Canada the same year as I did, and he is still all right. I never came across him when I was in France, although we were in the same division, and I have never come across and boys from Harrogate in the Canadians. I will give you Rushforth's address, as I am sure he would be pleased to receive the paper. I will end with kindest regards.


Harrogate Herald - 25th April 1917

W H Breare letter

On the voyage to Canada, Crossley met a Harrogate man called Lenevaitre, whose mother lives at 20 Glebe Road, Harrogate. His father is chef at the Royal Hotel. Crossley kindly went to see the mother of Lenevaitre, who was delighted to hear news of her boy, especially when it was that he had been safely landed and all right. Out in Canada a lady gave him a portrait group in which was her son, who was shortly to be discharged from service with the Canadians in that country and to return home. She gave him the photograph so that he might pick him out if he happened to be on the same transport when her lad comes home. This boy's name is S G [?] Whittall, C Company of a Canadian battalion. Crossley's term of seven years' service expires next November.
