Private J T Marshall


Harrogate Herald - 24th October 1917

W H Breare letter

Private J T Marshall is in No. 1 Ward, A Division, Military Hospital, Eastleigh, Hants. He writes to his mother to say that he is only there for a few days and then will be coming into Yorkshire, he hopes. He tells her that he is all right. You will know the father when I tell you that he is at the wine merchant's in Montpellier Parade. You will likewise remember that Mr & Mrs Marshall lost a son in the war, some time ago. I have been much interested to read J R Marshall's letter to his mother, it is so gentle, kind and considerate of her and his father. I don't know Marshall, but I am sure that he is one of the right sort. It has been a pleasure for me during this war to notice that boys that are so very good to their mothers invariably turn out well-equipped in all the highest virtues of real manhood.

W H Breare letter

I told you in a former letter that I was constantly asked to obtain the transfer of Harrogate wounded soldiers to their own town. Although the hospital authorities here do everything they can to help in these cases, it does not always come off. For instance : I had two replies sent to me by my friend Captain Titley, who is always doing his best for these lads, which said with regard to Patrick J Black : "This man has only a flesh wound, which will probably heal in the course of two weeks. On that account", the head of the hospital writes, "I do not recommend transfer". Then in the case of Private J R Marshall a letter from the officer commanding in the hospital where he is says : "Private J R Marshall will shortly be sent on furlough". So the friends of these men will shortly have them amongst them.
