Private W Mayers


Harrogate Herald - 3rd March 1915

W H Breare letter

I was pleased to have Private W Mayers walk into my office on Monday morning. He was looking well, and denied that he had had much the matter with him. One of his feet had been poisoned, and a bit of shell had struck his finger, but his hand was so cold that he did not feel any hurt from the blow. Mayers is on the horse transport, and is charged with the delivery of emergency rations. He was in the retreat from Mons, and was last to cross a certain bridge prior to its being destroyed. Robinson and Oddy are with him in his locality. Both, I understood, on the horse transport line looking after running the emergency rations. Mayers, who is not of the demonstrative sort, was very earnest in assuring me that everything possible was done for the interior and exterior man at the Front.
