Second Lieutenant A G Leighton Mullen


Harrogate Herald 11th April 1917

Roll of Honour

Second Lieutenant A G Leighton Mullen, son of Mr H J Mullen, of Harrogate, was wounded by shrapnel on march 5th. The shell burst on the side of he trench, and his fellow-officer was killed outright, he himself remaining unconscious until his arrival in hospital. Lieutenant Mullen enlisted in the 5th West Yorks in August, 1914, having just left school, at the age of 17. He served in the ranks in France for thirteen months, being gassed once and suffering from trench feet twice. He was then sent to England, and trained for his commission at Oxford, finally being gazetted to the 27th Durham Light Infantry. Lieutenant Mullen is now in Winchester Hospital, where we hope he will make a complete recovery.
