F Purchase


Harrogate Herald - 4th April 1917

Driver H Aubin, who is with the Salonica Field Forces, writes : 

I am going on all right. I have received the Harrogate Herald and like to hear about the old town and the boys. I see that a lot of the Harrogate boys are winning honours. I have passed the Harrogate Herald on to Private Read, who is in the Royal Army Medical Corps. We are still keeping Johnny Bulgar busy. I saw by the paper that Sergeant Atkinson, whom I know quite well, is joining the Tanks. He will have a chum in Raworth. I know a lot of Harrogate lads out here, but I have not dropped across any of them yet. You remember that Harrogate lad whose name I did not know. I found out that they call him F Purchase. The way I did so was by seeing his photo in the Harrogate Herald. I see you are having plenty of frost, and I bet the boys are having plenty of skating and sledging.
