Sergeant Waind

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 24th October 1917

W H Breare letter

On Friday afternoon I had a visit from Sergeant Waind, of the WYs, son of Mr & Mrs Waind, of 33 Wayfield Terrace. Mr Waind, senior, is a porter at the railway station, so by that perhaps you will know the Waind I mean. My soldier friend was invalided home a long while ago, and had the happiness of six weeks in hospital at St Nicholas, of which experience he will always retain pleasant remembrances. He even suggested to me that he would be glad to be bask at St Nicholas now, he was so extremely comfortable and everybody was so kind. There are very few Harrogate men in his lot now. The ranks have been filled by new men. He was at Ypres on the 9th of October and also at the Nieuport "do". He came on leave Saturday week and returned yesterday. Waind was highly delighted to meet, whilst at home, Newstead, who had been discharged. It seems Newstead will have to go through another operation in about 18 months, which is a long time to look forward to. Swires and Waring, of Pateley, were in Waind's platoon. He had met Regimental Sergeant Major Curry and Driver Medd. John Lee, of our staff, is in his battalion. Wade looks well and was in good spirits. The latter, naturally, seeing he was at home.

 

Harrogate Herald -7th November 1917

W H Breare letter

Last week I referred to a visit of a soldier on leave. I made a mistake in his name in the Herald. It appeared as Wade. It should have been Waind. You will remember him when I tell you that his father is employed at the railway station.
