Wilf Preston


Harrogate Herald - 13th February 1918


Private W L Johnson says : 

I don't forget the good times I spent at Harrogate previous to coming out here, it now being sixteen months since I came to France. I have been in that time in various parts of the country amongst the fighting. My old motto is "Hope for the best, and roll on peace and back to dear old Blighty", which I trust will be very soon. I now and again keep coming across one or two Harrogate and Knaresborough lads in other units. I met Wilf Preston at the base before last Xmas. I used to work at the same shop as he did previous to joining the colours. I was very pleased to meet him. Here's my best wishes to the Herald staff and yourself.
