Private A Oates


Harrogate Herald - 25th April 1917


Private A Oates says : 

Please excuse my delay in not acknowledging receipt of mandolin before now, but owing to our splendid advance we have been called upon for more work and have also been moving further up the line. In fact, we are only just getting settled again in our new quarters. I must thank you for your great kindness in getting the mandolin for me, also for sending it out. I have written to Miss Fleming [Probably sister of T H Fleming, Oak Lodge, Cold Bath Road] thanking her for the loan of it, and I can assure you it has already given us much pleasure, and trust it will continue to do so. You must feel highly delighted in England just now at the good news you are getting through. It is giving us a much better heart. If it goes on most of us will be home to enjoy some of Harrogate's season before it is over. It will just be starting by now. I don't suppose you will have had many in this Easter owing to such cold weather. Will close thanking you again. The best of luck to your paper and self.
