Edgar Smith


Harrogate Herald - 20th March 1918

Breare letter

Later, Private B T Smith, of a Labour Company, son of Mrs George Smith, of Cold Bath Road (the newsagent), called. Out 13 months. His brother Edgar Smith, who is in Malta, was a schoolteacher at Grove Road. Second Lieutenant Umpleby, of Harrogate, is Smith's platoon officer. Formerly the latter was in business in Parliament Street. These two share the Harrogate Herald. James Addlesey [sic - Suspect this Haddlesey], of Harrogate, who died out in France, was with Smith's lot. I believe pneumonia was the cause of his death. There are no Harrogate men with Smith except Lieutenant Umpleby; both have been fit all the time.
