Sergeant Albert Turner

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 8th December 1915

W H Breare letter

To Sergeant A Turner, A Company, 12th Battalion, West Yorks Regiment - Mother called in to see me the other day and told me she had had a letter from you. She mentioned incidentally that you wanted a helmet. I told her not to trouble herself, that I would send one. This I did at once. You may like to know that my wife knotted it. I trust you still keep well and will have the best of luck.
