Gunner John Lince


Harrogate Herald - 25th December 1918

W H Breare letter

I have had lots of prisoners from Germany in to see me, and been delighted to find how well they are looking after the kind attention they have received since leaving Hunland. One of these who called was Machine Gunner John Lince, of the 47th Machine Gun Corps. He is the son of Mrs Rose Lince, and lives at 31 Birch Grove, Bilton. He had only been out a year when taken prisoner on March 24th, and had been behind the lines. That is why his people were so worried by not receiving news of him. When he was taken prisoner they had to march from Fins to Cambrai, four days, without any food. His brother, Corporal J Lince, had been a prisoner on German territory, mainly in hospital. The latter saw and spoke to Fred Catton, of 31 Oatlands Mount, who was in the same hospital.
