Trooper H Matson


Harrogate Herald - 22nd December 1915

Trooper H Matson writes : 

Just a few lines in answer to you kindness in sending me your paper, which I must say is well read by the few Harrogate men in this Regiment. Well, the weather here is very bad at present, plenty of rain, etc., the same as you are having. Would any of your readers care to oblige by sending us a gramophone -any old one will do - to pass away the hours of a night when our day's work is finished? I am sure it will be a great pastime for us. If anyone had one which they had no use for, it would be greatly appreciated. I met a fellow named Stevenson out here the other week. I expect you will be supplying him with the Herald each week. I have no more to say this time, but will send you a few lines later on. Wishing your paper every success.


Harrogate Herald - 22nd December 1915

W H Breare letter

J W Makin makes a very good suggestion. He asks good people at home to send out French-English pronouncing dictionaries and electric pocket lamps. I can imagine that both these things will be extremely useful, especially the dictionary. The electric, too, you boys will find of the utmost value in some of the dark corners in which you find yourselves. Trooper H Matson wants a gramophone. This is rather difficult to obtain and to send out. However, I will try and see if it can be done.
