Lance Corporal Redgate

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 8th December 1915

Lance Corporal Redgate, of the 13th Northumberland Fusiliers, is in the Grove House Hospital with a bullet wound in the head. It was at Loos. They were waiting for a counter-attack in the trenches. During this period Redgate came under the eye of a sniper. These gentry show a considerable amount of cunning in their sniping and hide themselves in trees, in ruins or the roofs of deserted houses, and other places of concealment. Redgate, after being hit, hadn't the satisfaction of knowing whether or not the particular sniper who got him was hunted out or not. Sooner or later, however, this is their fate. Redgate is going on well.
