Second Air Mechanic Tong

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 18th July 1917

W H Breare letter

2nd AM Tong, Royal Flying Corps, is a son of Mr and Mrs Tong, Oatlands Mount, Harrogate. He looked in on me on Monday whilst on week-end leave. Unfortunately he has been ill since he arrived and has not recovered. Dr Hinsley Walker found that he would not be fit to return for two or three days. Before the war Tong was employed by Mr Atkinson, cycle dealer, Station Parade. Hartley, of Grove Park Walk or Avenue, joined with him. The latter was driver for the Road Car Company. Both went up in February. The Tong boys present a splendid record. The first son, Harry Tong, is in the Royal Engineers; the second, Fred Tong, was twelve years in the Royal Navy, and has been home once in the last four years; the third, Percy Tong, joined the Naval Air Service, but has since been discharged. The fourth, Stanley Tong, was six years in the Navy, discharged on account of health, and died at home. My visitor is the fifth son.
