Lance Corporal John Maher

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 1st August 1917

Private J Maher says : 

This my second time out here, and I must say that the weather is better now than when I was here before; you see it was winter. I am pleased that we are making it still hotter for Fritz. I hope you won't think I am impudent in asking you if you could send me a wristlet watch and a few papers or magazines. I have had the misfortune to break my watch since coming out this time, and I have a lot of time, so would like something to read. I am sure the boys out here will be ever grateful for what you have done for them while out here. I have seen a lot of Harrogate boys since I came here, and I always pass my paper on after reading it.
