Harrogate Herald - 29th December 1915

W H Breare letter

Driver Harry W Dent is known at the Front as "the Major". He has borne this name for some time, in fact before he went out. He worked for Messrs Mackay and Sons, Motor Engineers, West Park, before the war, and it was there, I fancy, he got his promotion. He is the son of Mr R Dent, Mayfield Grove, and has been out nine months at the Front. He came in to see me on Friday, jolly and well. He came home on Thursday night and returned Boxing night. I elicited from him that he had been in the same locality as Reginald Thompson, son of Mr Thompson, Victoria Hall, likewise Nicholson, of the Prince of Wales, Spofforth [mp], in fact, Nicholson is in his company. He is in "the pink", as Dent phrased it. Nicholson was sorry he had not time when on leave to look in and see me, and so was i. I want you boys to fully realise that, whilst I am delighted to see any of you when on leave, I quite understand that your time at home is fully occupied. Please don't feel bound to look in when you've so many other claims. When you can come, do so.
