Private Simpson


Harrogate Herald - 9th May 1917

Chats with the Wounded

Private Simpson of the Army Service Corps, is in the Royal Bath Hospital with rheumatism and sciatica, contracted on the Western Front. On one occasion they had a narrow escape when going up with an ammunition column. A German aeroplane came over and dropped bombs in their vicinity. Private Simpson has been twenty-one months on the Western Front, and practically the whole of that time has been spent away from the base. Since he came to Harrogate he has made steady progress. He is having the electrical treatment and the sulphur baths, and these are doing him good.
