Driver J G Smithson


Harrogate Herald - 10th January 1917


Driver J G Smithson writes a cheery letter, in which he says : 

Dear Mr Breare, I should like to thank you again for kindly sending me out the Harrogate Herald so regularly. I occasionally miss a week but then look forward to the next, and I can tell you I appreciate it very much when I do get it, as it is nice to read the local news and all news generally round about. I feel sorry when I see so many photos of the lads who have fallen, but we know that they have all done their duty. I cannot tell you much about here. I am not at the same place as I was when I last wrote you, but we keep jogging along, and look forward to the time when we shall be back again, after this account with Fritz is settled. It is rather warm here through the day yet, but I haven't seen any rain since last February, so I don't think you will be able to say that at home. Will now close, again thanking you for kindly sending me out the Herald, and wishing you every success and a bright and happy New Year.
