Private H Taylor


Claro Times - 15th October 1915

Mrs H Taylor, of Forest Lane Head, Starbeck, recently received a letter enclosing a photo and correspondence of her husband's, together with a message from Rifleman Riley, of the 1st Irish Rifles, stating that her husband, Private H Taylor, of the 2nd West Yorkshires, had been shot. Mrs Taylor, however, hoped that her husband had only been wounded, and not killed, and this hope was confirmed by an official letter received on Friday, stating that Private Taylor had been shot in the leg, on September 28th. Private Taylor was formerly in the Bearer Company of the Volunteers at Knaresborough, and joined the 2nd West Yorkshires in September, 1914. he went through the Battle of Neuve Chapelle, and sustained cuts on the face from shrapnel. Private Taylor was employed as parcels porter with the North-Eastern Railway before enlisting.
