Sergeant T F Smith

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 9th January 1918

Wednesday Gossip

Many of my readers will remember Sergeant T F Smith, who did dainty table centres whilst at the Royal Bath Hospital 19 months ago. He is in the best of health and spirits, he writes, "but I suffer great pain some days. It will be a surprise to you to see I am out here again, but of course my fighting career has come to an end, as I now only fit for the work I am doing now. When I left Harrogate I volunteered for France as an instructor on the Lewis gun, and I have now been back 17 months. My many friends I must ask you to kindly thank through your paper for their kindness to me while in Harrogate, as the days I spent there were the happiest and best of my life, though I have had some fine times in China. I am a lonely soldier, as they term it, as I cannot get any material to work on out here, and I know no one personally whom I could ask to send me some, as I never worried about taking people's addresses".
