Harrogate Herald - 5th December 1917

W H Breare letter

Gunner Newbould, of 20 Cecil Street, was wounded September 5th, and has been in hospital at Orpington, Kent, and then a VAD hospital, Abbey Lodge, Chislehurst. He called to see me. With him at the Front and in the same battery was Bob Riby, who lives at 13 Pine Street, and is married. Gunner H Sutcliffe, killed last February, was with is lot and the first man in his battery killed. My visitor was an assistant at Farrah's before enlisting. Newbould was slightly wounded before, but did not leave the battery. He was to go to report to a command depot on Monday. A brother of his, Sapper A Newbould, Royal Engineers, was wounded November 10th by shell, and has been in hospital at Newcastle. Another brother, H Newbould, is in the trenches. His brother-in-law, Private L W Kendall, of the West Yorks, was killed September 20th; he was married and lived at Killinghall.
