Sapper F L Simpson


Harrogate Herald - 7th February 1917


Sapper F L Simpson says : 

Just a few lines to thank you for the Herald which I am getting all right. I am the only Harrogate man in this party, but I have two or three Yorkshire pals from Leeds, Hull, and Ripon, and when I have read the news the paper goes round. Now the paper is coming I get to know how the old town is going on. It is the best news I get, and I am always glad when it arrives. I should very much like to meet some of the boys from Harrogate, but I have had no luck up to now. In fact, I have not come across a Yorkshire regiment, but I hope to do so soon. I might say that I am very comfortable in billets at this place, and get very good food, plenty to smoke, and a good bed, so the lads here are pretty well done to. Will you remember me to Mr Ogden. I know him very well. I don't think he knows that I am out here. I will close now, again thanking you for the paper and wishing you and the paper and the old town a prosperous New Year.
