J McNichol


Harrogate Herald - 24th January 1917

W Rowling writes : 

Just a line to let you know that I have arrived here safely, and after travelling in the "corridor trains" (?), otherwise trucks, have landed within sound of the big guns. You will understand I am unable to mention what place we are at, but it is practically all alike round here - dirty, and not a bit like home. At present we are billeted in barns, etc. The weather is anything but pleasant, wet and cold; but of course we cannot grumble, except to ourselves. I haven't come across anyone I know yet, but there is plenty of time. There are several local boys in my section, so if you send the Herald to me I can pass it on. There is S Ridehalgh, J McNichol, of New Park, and one or two more. Wishing you and Mrs B a happy and prosperous New Year.
