Lance Corporal R Marshall


Harrogate Herald - 17th November 1915

W H Breare Letter

Alderman Binns and friends of the smoke room, Montpelier Hotel (you know, that is Mr Carrick's place in Montpelier Parade) have very kindly sent me a football for the Front. A day or two after Alderman Binns, Mr Carrick, and again the friends of the Montpelier Hotel smoke room, sent a second football. This is earmarked for Lance Corporal R Marshall, of the 1/5th West Yorks. I shall duly send it to him. I have now, therefore, two unallotted footballs for you boys. Will those who need them let me know?

Private G Beckwith writes : 

3rd November 1915 : I am just writing a few lines to thank you for your papers. I have received two this week. It is nice to read about the old place, also the letters from my pals that are published. I had letters from two Harrogate lads in France - Lance Corporal R Marshall and B Hunter. They are both quite well. Hoping to receive your paper regularly, and wishing it every success. There is quite a rum on me when I get your paper, as there are a lot of Harrogate chaps out here and they all want to see it. PS - There was a nice letter in your paper the other day from Dr Bateson. It was an interesting letter. I must close now. Again thanking you for the paper.
