Sergeant C Lupton


Harrogate Herald - 15th January 1915

Sergeant C Lupton, of the 12th West Yorks Regiment, son of Mrs Lupton, 15 Robert Street, Harrogate, is a prisoner at Lager 2, Rennbahn, Munster, Block 2, Room 3, Westphalia, Germany.

In a letter home he shows that the dietary is not all that could be desired (there is evidently much more in the expression "all that could be desired"! than appears on the face of it) and should any of his friends desire to supplement it we may mention some of the articles that he suggest would be acceptable : Bread, currant bread, or anything with fruit in, tinned milk, syrup, chocolate powder, margarine, cheese, meat paste, marmalade, jam, oatmeal, or Quaker oats, &c.

Parcels up to 11lbs in weight can be sent free.

Harrogate Herald - 10th October 1917

W H Breare letter

I have been able to read a few letters from Sergeant C Lupton, son of Mrs Lupton, of Robert Street, who is a prisoner in Germany. With the letters came a photograph showing that Lupton is in good health, and bears no sign of privation. He is receiving parcels regularly. I hope to be able to give his photograph, together with a comrade, as they appear in their German prison.
