Private Fred Needham


Harrogate Herald - 1st August 1917


H Newby, acknowledging the Herald, says : 

I am sure it is quite a treat to get a bit of local news, as the paper gives you a good insight of what is going on at home. I am pleased to tell you that I have met a New Park chap I know called Fred Needham. He joined our battalion a fortnight ago. He is about the only local lad I know in our battalion. We are out for a rest at present, as you will see by the Church Army paper, and the countryside where we are resting is most picturesque; everything looks so peaceful. I am sorry to see Fred Miller from Clint is missing. he was an old workmate of mine.
