Private H W Paley


Harrogate Herald - 21st March 1917

W H Breare letter

I had a visit from a young soldier, who looked to me about 20 or 21. his name was Private H W Paley. He belonged to one of the Kent regiments, and has been in hospital in France. He is in Harrogate now with one of the regiments training here. When he called to see me the other day he was but 16 years, 7 months, and had been out some time. He will probably not be sent back to the Front, for the war will surely be over before he is 19.
