Private C Taylor


Harrogate Herald - 1st December 1915

Private C Taylor writes : 

Just a line to thank you for the papers you so kindly used to send me when I was in France. You will be surprised to hear that I was wounded on the 24th October, when my Battalion was in the trenches at Ypres. The bullet hit me in the muscle of the left arm, coming out in the chest. It severed the main leader in the arm, rendering the arm useless, but I am hoping I will regain the use of it in time.


Harrogate Herald - 21st March 1917

W H Breare letter

Private C Taylor, of the West Yorks, and of Knaresborough, is the son of Mr W J Taylor, The Hermitage, Knaresborough. The boy was wounded on October 24th, 1916, [See above - Should this read 1915 ?] in the chest, and the missile went through his arm, causing a "dropped" wrist. He has been in hospital four months, but was lucky enough to get to a Harrogate establishment part of that time. He has also been at Beckett's Park and the Chatham hospitals. He is so much better that on Monday he went to an Army Pay Corps in the South. He could not tell me much about the original boys, for his lot have been scattered. He is very well in himself, and quite cheerful. He hopes eventually to recover the use of his wrist and hand.
