Harrogate Herald - 27th February 1918

Sergeant A Waddington writes : 

I have just been having a look at the Harrogate Herald, and I am sorry to see by a letter that I have lost a big pal of mine, Sapper Albion Johnson, of Crimple, who met his death whilst crossing to Egypt on the Aragon, which was torpedoed. We were both cleaners and firemen at Starbeck Loco., previous to me joining the West Riding Police Force, and I send his parents my deepest sympathy in their loss. And Sapper G C Armstrong, the one who was saved, was transferred to the ROD, Royal Engineers, the same time as myself last year, and came to France on a draft previous to our company coming overseas. I would be greatly obliged if you could get me his address, so as I could write to him, as we were mates with both coming from Harrogate and were in the same hut together at Longmoor. I am hoping to meet some Harrogate lads this next week, as I hear some West Yorks are coming to a camp near our loco yard. I had bad luck in not seeing them when up our way a month ago.
