Harrogate Herald - 14th November 1917

W H Breare letter

Yesterday Private B Hollins, who is in the Army Pay Office at the base, and whom you will remember as son of Mr & Mrs J T Hollins, 4 Franklin Mount, looked in to see me accompanied by his wife. It seems when he first went out he had to go to hospital with illness, but has since been well and looked so yesterday. He occasionally sees a Harrogate boy and had met Wilkinson, the cricketer, two months ago, when Wilkinson was in hospital at Wimereaux. Hollins has been out eighteen months, and this is his first leave. Horace Rymer was buried in his village, and he often takes flowers to the grave. Miss Tomlinson, of Tanfield, is a VAD, in a hospital there.
