I have only come across one Harrogate chap who is
still here. I had a long chat with him - Sgt Styan, of ASC.
He is still receiving the paper and wishes to be remembered to you.
Again thanking you for the paper, which I have received regularly
for months, and wishing the paper every success.

W H Breare letter
CSM A Styan, of the Army Service Corps, has been two years
in Salonica come January, and in the Army since the war started.
During all that time he has had but ten days' leave when in France.
Out in Salonica he has had appendicitis and been in hospital three
times. According to his last letter he was expecting another
operation in six weeks. I am told he only weighs 7st., so that does
not look as if he is fit. Naturally his friends would like him to
come home on leave or to be transferred, and I have been asked my
opinion as to the probability. Styan is one of those men who
sticks and is of the very last to ask for leave. I am not sure
whether I can covey the facts to the proper quarter; but I should,
indeed, be pleased if I could do anything to help his transfer or
leave. I think I must try!
