Corporal W Oddy writes : 

November 25th : Just a few lines, hoping to find you well. At present I am in the Infirmary with a bad cold, which I contracted on leave. My wounds are nicely healed up, but now have got neuritis bad in my left arm and shoulder, so I expect to be on the sick list some time yet. I am glad to be out of the trenches once again and in dear old ......... with my old friends once again. I again take great pleasure in thanking you for being so kind in sending the paper to me whilst in France. I have had a lot returned whilst in hospital. I used to look forward to the usual day and generally got them, as the news was most interesting, both civil and military. Well, I will close. Hoping you have the greatest success with your paper.


Harrogate Herald - 1st December 1915

I am sorry to say that Corporal W A Oddy, who was wounded, and whose injuries healed, is now in the Infirmary with a cold contracted whilst on leave. He has neuritis rather badly in the left arm and shoulder, but I hope he will speedily recover his normal health and condition.


Harrogate Herald - 25th July 1917

Corporal W A Oddy, King's Royal Rifles, has again been wounded, this time in the face and right arm with shrapnel, but is progressing favourably, and expects to be all right in a few weeks. Fortunately the wound is not serious, and he has not been sent away from the line headquarters.
