Harrogate Herald - 27th February 1918
Sergeant S B Moore writes :
You must please accept my heartiest congratulations on your
success in bringing about the change of name for our beautiful
concert hall. It is certainly a very appropriate name, and reflects
great credit on the people of Harrogate, for, by erasing the German
name Kursaal, they have removed a contaminating attain from
Harrogate's principal house of entertainment. If you remember, three
of my pals compiled an article on the German name Kursaal, which you
were kind enough to publish in the second week of September, 1917.
of course, you will know that one of the quartette was killed in the
Passchendaele stunt, who was none other than Sergeant Calverley.
It is quite unnecessary for me to inform you how keenly we feel our
great loss, as Jim [Calverley] was one of the best. I quite
forgot to mention the fact that another Sergeant of the quartette
was wounded in the same stunt, Sergeant Tattersfield, and is
at present in a hospital somewhere in Blighty, and from reliable
information recently received he is progressing quite favourably.
