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.

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
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.
