Lance Corporal Taylor


Harrogate Herald - 13th June 1917

Chats with the Wounded

A Grim Souvenir

Lance Corporal Taylor, of the King's Royal Rifles, is in the Beaulieu Hospital with a shrapnel wound in the back. He was in charge of a Lewis gun team. They had advanced and got into the German trenches. They were told off to hold an outpost, and were subjected to the German shelling. The piece of shrapnel which struck Lance Corporal Taylor knocked him down. He lay out for about seven hours. He has had two operations despite which the piece of shell still remains in the back, and this may necessitate another operation to get it out. Lance Corporal Taylor, although having to carry this grim souvenir about with him a little longer, is doing nicely. He was out at the Front about fourteen months.
