S P Pett


Harrogate Herald - 17th January 1917


S P Pett, who is at the Front with a lot more Harrogate and district lads, writes : 

Just a line to thank you for the parcel I received last night while I was in the trenches. I have given the things out to the boys. All of them wish to thank you very much. The things were just what they wanted. As I told you it is very cold out here just now. I want to ask you to thank the senders, as I have very little time, and cannot write to them all. We have been having a rough time just lately. We were shelled out of our billets on New Years Eve - a nice start for the year - but I am pleased to say that no one was hurt. Two or three huts got a shell in, but all the men had been taken out. I am hoping to be on leave very soon, but I don't know when, but when I do come I will call and see you, as I have a lot to tell you.
