Private Oscar Thomas

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 6th June 1917

W H Breare letter

Private Oscar Thomas (148574) C Company, 11th Platoon, 78th Battalion Grenadiers of Canada, was wounded on the 18th of April, and is in hospital in England. Will anyone who knows, send me his address, as it is required by a friend?

 

Harrogate Herald - 13th June 1917

W H Breare letter

Some time ago a lady asked me to obtain the address of a Canadian soldier in hospital who was a friend of hers. On Thursday a lady came in with a soldier. Whose name was Private O L Thomas, of the Canadian Forces. This was the very man whose address the lady requested, and she herself came with Thomas. I was glad to see them. Thomas got his wound at Vimy, and eventually arrived at a hospital in Cardiff. He found out from the Herald that his address was wanted. It seems to me all these Canadian lads are made in the same fine mould. Thomas is a jolly chap, intelligent, sympathetic, and running over with good nature. What we do owe those Canadians and other Colonial boys!. it is no use trying, we can't say it.
