Private J Smithies


Harrogate Herald - 27th January 1915

Dear Sir, I have found time at last to write to you. At the time of writing I am enjoying a few days in billet. I am sure I was very glad to receive your presents and newspaper, as it cheers us up out here to know how things are going on at home. We are having quite a lot of wet weather out here in the trenches. We are up to the knees in mud and water, and have often to sleep in a couple of inches of water, which is not so pleasant. But we are sticking it as well as possible. I would be pleased if you could send me another paper out. I will now conclude with best wishes to all for a bright and prosperous New Year.

Yours truly, Private J Smithies.

[Only one in street directory - Could be either son or husband of Mrs S A Smithies, 26 Ripon Road]
