Private Pickering


Harrogate Herald - 30th May 1917

Chats with the Wounded

Private Pickering, of the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, is in the St George's Convalescent Home suffering from rheumatism contracted on the Western Front. In November last they were three weeks in the trenches, where the conditions were such that the men spent practically the whole time in mud and water. After being invalided out of the trenches he was five weeks in hospital in France in a weak state. He is undergoing the treatment in Harrogate, while he is making a steady, if slow, recovery.
