Private Joseph Outhwaite


Harrogate Herald - 7th April 1915

Photo - News was recently received that Private Joseph Outhwaite, of the 3rd West Yorks, had been wounded and taken to a hospital in France. Still sadder tidings of his death have just arrived. He was being removed to a hospital in England, when he died on board ship, and was buried at sea. The twenty year old son of Mr and Mrs Charles Outhwaite, of 21 Torrs Road, Harrogate, worked for five years in the employ of Messrs John Smith, brewers, at their office in Prospect Crescent. He promptly enlisted, and was for some time in training at Whitley Bay. Then he was transferred to the firing line, and after noble and courageous service received his fatal wound. Our sympathies are with the bereaved parents and friends, who, we trust, will receive deep consolation from the knowledge that this brave son has died the most heroic of deaths, and earned the lasting gratitude of his race and country.
