Private J Harold Leyland


Harrogate Herald - 5th September 1917

W H Breare letter

By the way, I have just this minute had to see Mr Fred Leyland, of 2 North Lodge Avenue, New Park, father of the late Pte J Harold Leyland, who died on the 20th December 1915, from the gas attack of December 19th, the day before. A soldier had told him that "The Petrograd March", dedicated to the Grand Duchess George, was very popular out at the Front. He is anxious to know who composed that march, as he suspects it was his son. If any of you musical chaps can ascertain, will you let me know, or, better still, write to Mr Leyland at the address I have given you.
