On Monday, November ?st, the marriage took place, at St Mary's Church, of Albert V Sadler, leading seaman HMS ---, son of Mr and Mrs Mason Sadler, of 22 Dawson Terrace, Harrogate, to Miss F Lines, daughter of Mr G Lines, of West Hartlepool. The ceremony was performed by the Rev H Maddrell, curate of St Luke's Church, the bride being given away by her brother. The bridesmaid was Miss Dorothy Sedgley, of Newcastle. The bridegroom, who is on a short leave from the Fleet, was married by special license, and he was attended by Trooper G Parker, of the Yorkshire Hussars, who is on short leave from the trenches from France. The bride and the bridegroom received numerous presents.

W H Breare letter

I have a parcel of things for Parker, of the Harrogate Industrial Window Cleaning Co. when I last heard of him he was in hospital, through only slight illness. I hope; now, I want to send a parcel to him, but I daren't forward it until I am quite sure of his present address. Perhaps he will let me know where to send. You know Parker gave up his business to enlist, and left his brother in charge, who has since been called up. His nephew at 17 then took charge. I often see the nephew at work and his companion. Parker will be glad to hear from me that I think they are both doing well. At all events I am sure they are very good boys, and work hard and cheerfully.

W H Breare letter

The nephew of Trooper George Parker, whose name is Crawford Wright, has been called up, and joined the Yorkshire Hussars who are in England. The youth who was helping the nephew to carry on Parker's window cleaning business, has now the assistance of a very suitable man.

Roll of Honour

Mrs Parker, 10 Victoria Place, Skipton Road, Harrogate, has received a notification from the Records Office at York that her son, Trooper George Parker, of the Yorks Hussars, is an inmate of the 7th Canadian General Hospital, Etaples, France, suffering from slight gas poisoning. Parker formerly played with the old Harrogate Rugby Club and the newly formed local Northern Union organisation. Along with his brother he carried on the Industrial Window Cleaning Business.

W H Breare letter

I have just received a letter from the mother of my friend, Trooper George Parker (you will remember him, he is the Harrogate Industrial Window Cleaning Company), saying that he is at the 7th Canadian General Hospital, France, suffering from gas poisoning. Fortunately the attack is light. In the notice to his mother he is described as "Private", but, as he is in the Yorkshire Hussars, I have designated him Trooper, which, I think, is correct. At all events, his friends will better identify him thus.
