Arthur Tattersdill


Harrogate Herald - 30th May 1917


Private J A Scott writes : 

Just a few lines to thank you for your kindness in sending me the lovely mouth organ, which I was very glad to receive; and will you kindly thank Mr or Mrs Robinson, of Knaresborough, for their kindness in giving it? Tell them I was delighted to have it, for it will pass many a dull hour away, and after a hard day's work it is delightful to have a bit of music. I only know one Harrogate lad. It is Arthur Tattersdill, late of the fish shop in Skipton Street. [Fried fish dealer, 44 Skipton Street] We met at York, and we have been together ever since. We have been at several places in France, and at present are working together on a big railway dump. It is extremely hot here, and we get some heavy work at times. The blossom on the hedges and fruit trees is lovely. I notice particularly the absence of birds here, but the heavy guns are often roaring away, so I think that is the reason they have left. I have been at a few places in France, but have not seen anything to come up to the good old town yet.
