The following are men who have sent us the Army post-card briefly stating that they are well and have received papers and parcels, or whose letters contain views that have repeatedly been expressed by other correspondents, but show their friends that they are all right :

Letters

Private A Long and Private C Wilkins, in a joint letter say : 

Just a few lines to acknowledge the receipt of parcel containing Woodbines, presumably sent by Nurse Clarkson, Elm Park. Please accept our greatest thanks for forwarding, and please convey the same to the above-named kind lady and also Mr Parkin, 8 Victoria Avenue. We are sure it is more than good of them to send British Tommies the things they need so much, and we also thank you for your trouble in getting them. It is very good of you to look after the old Harrogate lads who are amongst the shot and shell and hardships out here. We are both enjoying the cigarettes the kind lady sent us, as we had been in the trenches eight days, and six days out of the eight we hadn't a smoke on us. We were nearly dying for one, and I can tell you we were more than delighted when we received your cigs., and we shall never forget the good people of Harrogate. The weather out here is getting a little brighter. The war is beginning to look nearer the end. If all goes well this spring handicap, I think the lads will begin to smile. We haven't yet received your paper, but I expect we shall be getting it very soon. Again thanking you for your kindness and wishing you and the good old town every success. Good luck.
