Corporal G F Moody


Harrogate Herald - 2nd May 1917

The following are men who have sent us the Army post-card briefly stating that they are well and have received papers and parcels, or whose letters contain views that have repeatedly been expressed by other correspondents, but show their friends that they are all right :

Cpl G F Moody


G F Moody writes : 

As I am a Harrogate lad, I have read many letters from pals through your paper. I though I Just would a line and let you know how a local chap is getting on in John Bull's Division. By what I see in the Blighty news we are still pushing old Fritz back, and I am sure he is keeping us running after him all the time, but we have to put up a fight at times, just to remind us there is a war on; but rally, old Fritz makes you smile. It appears the other day he was not content at trying to shell us out of it, so he sent a big 12in shell on to one of his late officer's feather beds in a dugout which he had used before we gave him notice to quit the village, so you see his shells are just like him - they like a feather bed. I was very sorry indeed to read of the late Lieutenant Pullan being killed in action. He was an officer in the same brigade as I am, and I am sure the lads feel it very much indeed, as he was very much liked by all under him. Just before I close there are two things I should like to ask you to favour me with. One is your paper every week, as it is such good company, and, secondly, if there is a local reader who would care to send this old Tommy a watch, as they are so very useful to a chap out here, and I should be greatly obliged. Wishing your paper every success.
