Private Margetts


Harrogate Herald - 9th May 1917

Chats with the Wounded

Private Margetts, of the Warwickshires, is in the Grove House Hospital with shrapnel wounds in the right arm and the body. He got hit when they were going over the top to take a German trench. This was on Sunday. He lay out all night in a shell hole in "No Man's Land", and the following morning managed to get back to the British trench line again. He was taken down to Orvilliers to get his dressings on, and from there he was conveyed to the dressing station at Etarpes, and then to Boulogne, and so across to this country. He is now doing well.
