Corporal W Prentice

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 21st November 1917

Letters

Corporal W Prentice writes : 

Thanks so much for sending me the paper. I had charge of a party carrying rations up the line. Everything went well until I was just about to enter the trench , when Fritz must have seen us. However, I had got my men into safety when he gave us a little "iron rations". I think you will know what they are. I got the rations delivered and back into our billets, so you can guess that I enjoyed laying on my bed having a cigarette and reading the paper. It was as good as a meal. We see plenty of gardens here, but they have all been broken and battered about; no one can realise what it is like unless they see it in reality. I expect all will be left after this war, then Cook's, the tourist people, will be making a fortune out of it. I only hope the war will end.

Harrogate Herald 29th January 1919

Expressing thanks for the Harrogate Herald, Corporal W Prentice says : 

As noticed the small paragraph where you had me down as killed. I am pleased to see that it has been rectified. We are in a little place called Marbaix, which is on the main road between Landrecies and Avenes. I have been through Tasniers many times. I saw in your paper there were some Harrogate lads there, but up to now I have not come across any. The country round here looks very nice more like England.
