Harrogate Herald - 29th December 1915


M2 Private A Nightingale, MT, Army Service Corps, after thanking Mr W H Breare for the Herald, says : We still are having very rough weather here, rain and slush. It's enough to give a saint the pip. I have met one or two of the Harrogate boys. They seemed to be in the best of health and merry. I know them by sight, but I forget their names, as I have not worked round Harrogate for several years. There is a young chap here that comes from the old town, Bombardier C H Smith, 46146, Royal Garrison Artillery, 46th Siege Battery, BEF. He used to live in Mayfield Grove, and would like to have your paper, as I have not always the chance to give him mine with having to move about a lot. I am attached to his battery, driving what we call a cabbage eater - a machine for pulling heavy loads. Well, think that is all this time. Wishing your paper every success, and you and your staff a merry Xmas and happy and prosperous New Year.
