Trooper Harold William Preston


Harrogate Herald - 22nd December 1915

W H Breare letter

I am sorry to say that Trooper H W Preston has been killed. The authorities are desirous of obtaining the address of his father or mother, or both. Mr Button, manager for Marshall and Snelgrove, in James Street, appealed to me, but I could not give him the information. Will anybody who knows Preston's people's address write direct to Mr Button? Then there will be no time lost.
