Maurice Rushforth


Harrogate Herald  7th February 1917


E F Lenevaitre [There is a Frederick Lenevaitre at 20 Glebe Road] writes : 

Being a Harrogate boy and in receipt of your paper, which I received when in hospital in Dublin and now in this Canadian convalescent camp, I thought you would be pleased to hear from me and to know that your paper is very much appreciated by me. I am being invalided back to Canada shortly, and was given two days leave, which I spent in Harrogate last Sunday and Monday, and would have called in to see you, but you will understand with such a short leave I spent most of my time with my parents. Previous to going out to Canada in 1907 I worked in the Gas Office in James Street for four and a half years. I had a field card from Maurice Rushforth, who was also in he Gas Office with me and went out to Canada the same year as I did, and he is still all right. I never came across him when I was in France, although we were in the same division, and I have never come across and boys from Harrogate in the Canadians. I will give you Rushforth's address, as I am sure he would be pleased to receive the paper. I will end with kindest regards.
