Sergeant Sibson

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 23rd May 1917

Letters

Private H Sharpe writes : 

I am in the same battalion as Sgt Sibson, who you will no doubt have seen whilst he was on pass but a few days ago. We are out for a few days' rest, and as luck happens we have been dumped near a YMCA. A few days ago we passed through Bapaume, which on looking round has been a very nice town. We had the divisional band playing to us the other day, and it just reminded me of the band in the Valley Gardens. (W have forwarded Pte Sharpe some games we had in hand - Ed)
