Private W Nelson


Harrogate Herald - 25th April 1917


Private W Nelson says : 

Just a few lines to thank you for the socks, which I received while in the trenches. They came in A1, for the weather was a bit rough, and they could not have come at a better time. In my section (the bombardiers, as we are called) are mostly Harrogate lads, and wish to be remembered to you. There is one thing we would like, that is a mouth organ, if you have one to spare. You will have seen by the war news that the Harrogate lads still keep the old ball rolling. Wishing you and all at home the best of luck. (We have sent Private Nelson a mouth organ we had by us - Ed)
