Private Vernon Smith


Harrogate Herald - 25th December 1918

W H Breare letter

Private Vernon Smith, 2/6th West Yorks, son of Mr and Mrs Smith, Station Parade, who was wounded in hands and leg, gave me a call on Monday. He has been in hospital at Bristol for some time, and is home on ten days' leave. He joined up in July, 1917, went to France in November, 1917, and through the fighting on the Marne, the Somme, and Cambrai without a scratch, but, as Tommy says, "stopped one" in October. He is going on very well, and returns to Bristol on the 30th. He was a Lewis gunner.
