Private Mason

 
 

Claro Times - 15th October 1915

Private Mason, of the 12th West Yorkshires, is well known as a Harrogate taxi-driver before joining the army. He went to the Dardanelles a short time ago, and no news of him has been received by his wife in Regent Avenue for a month past. Serious rumours are abroad, which it is hoped are untrue, and that Mrs Mason's anxiety will soon be relieved by the knowledge that he is well.

 

Harrogate Herald - 15th December 1915

Good and useful work continues to be done in connection with the military ward at the Harrogate Infirmary. Here soldiers are taken from the camps round Harrogate, and there are rarely less than a dozen men receiving every attention that medical skill and excellent nursing can provide. Two of the patients are Private G H Wilson and Private Mason, both of the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, stationed at Ripon. The former is suffering from rheumatism, and the latter is laid up in connection with an accident. The men speak gratefully of the treatment they receive in the ward.
