Private Eric M Moore


Harrogate Herald - 30th May 1917

Writing home, Private E M Moore, son of Mr and Mrs T Moore, of Albert Road, Bilton, [Thomas Moore, 87 Albert Road] says : 

I am very pleased to say we have left the town where headquarters are, as it was a hot shop. Fritz shelled the place every day, the roar of our guns was incessant night and day. We have been on the march ever since we left (Tuesday), and are going from camp to camp, sleeping all night and marching through the day. I am enjoying this immensely, as we are passing through tasteful country, and now that we are away from the line one forgets that there is a war on at all. I have come across another Harrogate chap whom I know very well, and he is in the same company but in another section. The insects have started to trouble us, and I am thinking seriously of training a squad of them to "form fours". Our division is out on rest now, and it will be some weeks before we do anything active, and I shall be able to see a good deal of France whilst moving about.
