Harrogate Herald – 16th January 1918
W H Breare letter
In reply to F Stringfellow's request for
confirmation that there is such a person as the Bishop of
Knaresborough we cannot answer as he suggested. His friend can take
it from me, however, that there is such a Bishop, for we have
reported his sermons frequently. He is Dr Lucius Smith, and
acts as Suffragan Bishop to the Bishop of Ripon. He conducted
confirmations in Harrogate last year.
Harrogate Herald - 2nd January 1918
Acknowledging the Herald, F Stringfellow says :
It is very nice to know what is going on at home and read the
letters from other boys who are out here. I am fortunate in having
another Harrogate fellow along with me - Walter Fawcett, of
Grove Road - so you can guess we often talk of the old town and the
passing events as we read them each week in the Herald. We passed
another Harrogate lad the other day when we were on the move - Harry
Smith, RGA, of Grove Park Road; had a few passing words. He said
he had just returned from leave. We have passed through many ruined
villages and towns in our travels, and had some exciting and also
interesting experiences. We are having real Christmas weather just
now; very keen frosts, and about six inches of snow on the ground.
Regret to see so many Harrogate boys in the casualty lists, but hope
the New Year will soon see an end to it.
