Private Albert Thompson


Harrogate Herald - 3rd January 1920

Ex-Private Albert Thompson, son of Mr Albert Thompson, Market House, Harrogate, has returned home. On the outbreak of the war he joined the 4th Battalion Canadian Expeditionary Force, at Esteven, and having been disabled in the war he has now returned home to take up a course of training for the post of a sanitary inspector. Prior to the war he served in the Canadian volunteer force, the 20th Border Regiment. It is a singular coincidence that the fifty men who volunteered at the first recruiting meeting held by the Mayor of Esteven have all come through the war although many are disabled. Another son, Mr Reg Thompson, was killed in the Somme advance of 1916. Mr Albert Thompson (junr) has recently received an illuminated address signed by the Mayor of Esteven.
