Sergeant Robinson


Harrogate Herald - 8th January 1919

W H Breare letter

Sergeant Robinson, of Knaresborough, looked in to see me on Thursday whilst on leave from Germany, where he is with the army of occupation. He is one of the nine that Lieutenant Titley brought home in the early hours of Boxing Day, and he was very grateful for the way Mr Titley helped him towards his home. Being a National Reservist he at once rallied to the colours on the outbreak of war, suspending his business withy the impression that he might be back in a month or so. He is one of the Beechwood Boys, undergoing training with them at Harrogate. He went out to France with them and has experienced their vicissitudes, the 2/5th having a pretty rough time when they got to the fighting line, being "over the top" every day and sometimes two or three times a day at one period. He was transferred to the "Koylies" on the 2/5th disbandment. He has had only eleven days in hospital during the two years out.
