Private  A Storr


Harrogate Herald  15th December 1915

Private A Storr writes : 

Just a line to thank you for the Heralds which I have received with unfailing regularity for the past six months. The weather here is very bad just now. We are up to our eyes in mud, but still happy amongst it all. I suppose we shall get out of it some time. I always turn to your article, To Our Boys on Service, as soon as I get the paper. It is at once amusing and a link with the dear old town. Although not actually a native, I always take a great interest in the place and its doings, and hope that we shall all be able to see it again in the near future. Again thanking you and wishing your paper every success.


Harrogate Herald - 9th May 1917


Pte A Storr writes : 

I have been very fortunate in getting the papers with shifting about so frequently recently. Things are hustling some in this quarter just now, so have not much time for writing. Hoping this will find you quite well.


Harrogate Herald - 25th July 1917

W H Breare letter

I have just had a letter from Mrs Storr, wife of Private A Storr, MT, Army Service Corps, whose house is 123 Albert Road, Harrogate. He is in hospital in London, and Mrs Storr is staying near him. She tells me her husband is improving slowly, but he has to undergo another operation, and the doctors are afraid of his spine. Storr's case, she tells me, is going to be a long and tedious one; but she will be thankful if he is spared to her. Rather a curious thing happened in connection with the Herald. You boys remember that I published the details of Storr's wound, and mentioned the hospital in London where he was staying. A certain lady, living somewhere near the hospital, was good enough to call and see him, as he was from Harrogate. It seems she gets the Herald regularly, and that is how she discovered his address. Very nice of the lady, was it not? I hope that my soldier friend's case will turn out very much better than his wife or anyone else anticipates. If it does, the daily visits of the wife will have been a great factor.
