Private A Richardson

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 1st December 1915

Private A Richardson, 2734, C Company, 14th Platoon, 5th West Yorks, is a brother of Private Norman Richardson, whom you will remember as receiving that particular mouth organ I have mentioned. He came in to see me on Friday. He returned home on the pathetic duty of attending the funeral of his wife's sister, but, unluckily, he arrived too late. He tells me he is in good health and has increased in weight. He is as cheerful and as happy as the rest of the boys. He remarked on the ample supply of food and everything else save those little dainties sent out by the kind people at home. These are all very desirable extra comforts.

Private A Richardson, of the 3rd Entrenching Battalion, brother of Private N Richardson, had the misfortune to be hit the day after his return from leave. In a letter to Mr W H Breare, Private N Richardson, referring to the incident, says : My brother came to see you the other week. Well, he was wounded the day after he came back, so I say it is a bit of bad luck on his part. It is very bad out here for getting about. The roads are awful muddy, and our rest billets are up to the knees in mud.
