Harrogate Herald - 11th July 1917

W H Breare letter

Rifleman H Blackburn, KRR, got leave on account of illness of his mother, but he was not in time to see her ere she passed away. Blackburn is the fifth son of John Blackburn, 55 Stonefall Avenue, Starbeck. His eldest brother, William Blackburn, was with the Canadians, but had rheumatic fever, and was discharged. He may be well enough later to rejoin. The second brother, Albert Blackburn, is in Salonica; the third, Norman Blackburn, in Alexandria; Horace Blackburn, the youngest, is in Ireland. With my caller at the Front is Bob Wardman, Regent Street, who worked at the Co-op, in High Harrogate; Corporal Mount; Ireland, of King's Road; and Suttill, of New Park. Fifteen months since Blackburn was home. He is continually meeting Harrogate boys, though his regiment is a London one. It was formed by the late Earl of Feversham.

 

Harrogate Herald - 5th December 1917

W H Breare letter

Corporal Charles Musham, Army Veterinary Corps, came in this morning. I didn't happen to see him, but he is coming again. Musham, whose son occasionally comes to help us out, is a bright little chap and very good worker. Musham says that Ralph Suttill's son, of the King's Royal Rifles, was wounded, but is now all right. Musham and Suttill had tea together, and he gave Suttill his Herald.
