Driver G Mills

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 18th April 1917

W H Breare letter

I have just opened a letter from Driver G Mills, of Harrogate, in which he gives me the sad news that his chum, a Harrogate lad, of the Canadian Forces, has been killed at the Front. It is Herbert S Whitehead, younger son of Mr Jack Whitehead, formerly architect, of Harrogate, now of Canada. The lad was in a dug-out, when a shell came and buried him. Death must have been instantaneous, for his spine was broken by the heavy debris. When our readers see this distressful announcement there will be widespread grief in Harrogate, for the bereaved parents are well-known here, and have our heartfelt sympathy.
