Gunner George Colin Pitkin


Harrogate Herald - 20th June 1917

The following are men who have sent us the Army post-card briefly stating that they are well and have received papers and parcels, or whose letters contain views that have repeatedly been expressed by other correspondents, but show their friends that they are all right :

"Jack" George C Pitkin


Harrogate Herald - 20th June 1917

W H Breare letter

To George Colin Pitkin

I received your letter on Friday morning, and just as I was reading it the Mayor walked in, so I handed your note to His Worship, who will immediately attend to the matter. In fact, when he left me he was going on the first errand in connection with it.


Harrogate Herald - 4th July 1917

W H Breare letter

Will Private George C Pitkin send me his full address? His parcels have been returned owing to there being insufficiently addressed. Will all soldiers make a not of this? It would save much trouble and time.


Harrogate Herald - 22nd August 1917

W H Breare letter

Gunner George C Pitkin when on leave left his watch at home to be mended, but on being sent out to him by his mother it never reached him. In consequence of this we sent him a watch and some cigarettes on July 23rd, and up to August 6th he had not received them. I am hoping to hear that both parcels have reached him.
