Private F W Robinson


Harrogate Herald - 18th April 1917

W H Breare letter

To Private F W Robinson

On March 9th I sent you an excellent safety razor, but I understand you have not received it. I am still hoping it will turn up, but send you now an ordinary razor, so if you receive razor will you hand the ordinary one to some other boy who needs one?


Harrogate Herald - 9th May 1917


Private F Maton says : 

I see by the paper that quite a number of Harrogate lads are mentioned. By the way, do you still send your paper to Private F W Robinson, 17th West Yorks? If so, could you give me his address? I was moved away from the company while he was in hospital, therefore I didn't get to see him. The weather is simply a treat, and makes it better for us and worse for the Huns. I have given them a capital letter, but I am sure they don't deserve it. They got a terrible whacking round this quarter. We have taken a great number of prisoners. My word, it would do them good if they saw the number of guns we have ready for the opportune moment. I hope you are quite well, as I am in the pink at present. Thanking you for the paper.

Private F W Robinson had his Xmas dinner in style, dining in a mansion in Italy off pork, vegetables, pudding, oranges, apples, nuts, and beer. His brother George, who before enlisting was employed in the process room of this firm, had also a "real good Xmas" in Staffordshire.
