Walter Lewis


Harrogate Herald - 21st March 1917

W H Breare letter

Many of you will know Mr W Lewis, of Grove House, who has been attached to the family of the late Mr Samson Fox for thirty years. Well, his son, Private J W Lewis, of New Zealand, came in to see me with his father. He was an old Volunteer before he went out, and only landed in this country on the 3rd of March. He had a splendid trip of little over nine weeks, and all arrived in good form, with the exception of one man, who had to be put ashore with appendicitis. Lewis has a wife and two boys in New Zealand, and was in the plumbing business. When the time came that he thought he ought to enlist he closed his place of business and joined. Lewis served his time with Mr Bellerby, plumber, Harrogate, and when quite a boy for Armstrong's, the printer. His younger brother, Walter Lewis, also enlisted in New Zealand. Lewis has the alert manner, quick brain, and geniality of our Colonial boys. It is well to have such men of spirit fighting for the Mother Country.
