Private J W Turner

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 9th May 1917

W H Breare letter

Private J W Turner, whose number is 21340, is somewhere in hospital out Salonica way. As his mother does not know the address of the hospital, I am stating this fact perchance anyone should be able to give me the information for her. In the meantime I have advised her to write to her son's last address in the hope that the letters will follow him.

 

Harrogate Herald - 6th June 1917

W H Breare letter

Mrs Turner, of Chestnut Grove, who had not heard from her son for some time, and for whom she asked us to make enquiries about a fortnight ago, had a letter from him on Sunday. He has been in hospital, and just left Karari Convalescent Camp after malarial fever. Jasper Stephenson, better known to his friends as "Daisy", who joined up with Turner three years ago, and was thought by some of his friends to have "gone under", it is gratifying to hear, is all right, and has been suffering from the same complaint as Turner - malaria. Both lads have been together from the time thy enlisted, and have been in Salonica two years. Turner was page boy at the Grand Hotel up to enlisting.
