Private A Simpson


Harrogate Herald - 4th July 1917

W H Breare letter

On the 6th of last October, at Beaumont Hamel, Private A Simpson was wounded, after being out in France 12 months. He is the son of Mr and Mrs G H Simpson, of Starbeck. For five weeks he was in hospital in France, and has been in Eastbourne the rest of the time. he called to see me on Thursday morning. I don't think he has sufficiently recovered for you to see him out where you are for some time. by the way, he is a member of the North-Eastern Railway battalion. The lad was in excellent spirits. It was good to see him.
