Private Charles Moore


Harrogate Herald - 25th April 1917

Private Charles Moore writes : 

We have arrived at our destination at last. We landed in France on March 31st after a rough sea voyage, and stopped at a rest camp for two days and then to another. We left in cattle trucks for a village further up the line and stopped at a farmhouse for two days. Then travelled in motor 'buses to a village where we are now. Our work is to repair the roads, which are in a terrible state. I have never been in this part of France before. This is my second time out here. I was for ten months with the 1/5th West Yorks. Since leaving the West Yorks, after being wounded, I appeared before two medical boards and got B2. I was transferred to this regiment six weeks ago, and would be much obliged if you could send me the Herald every week as you need do.
