Lieutenant Horace Bernard Milling

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 24th January 1915

W H Breare letter

I need not introduce you to Mr Horace Milling, I am sure. It will serve if I remind you that he was for years an Alderman of the borough and has been a popular, almost everything that is good, or distinguished, including Mayor. He is still one of our most attentive Justices at the Court House in Raglan Street, and as keen in his sympathies and work for deserving causes as ever. You will be pleased to hear that he has a son and nephew in the trenches. Captain Milling, the nephew, has just won the Military Cross. I had nearly forgotten Mr Horace Milling was for years a zealous and capable officer in the Harrogate Volunteers, so the son may well inherit the military spirit.
