Sergeant Waite


Harrogate Herald - 2nd August 1916


Private W P Birkinshaw writes : 

Just a line or two to thank you for your very acceptable paper, which I receive every week. I was very sorry to hear of "Don" Bell's death. I am trying to find his grave, so that I can put flowers on it. I have seen most of the men in his Company, and all of them are very upset about him. I only hope that his wife will receive the honour that I am sure he deserved. You will all by now have heard of Alf Shaw's success. He came round to see me last night with Sergeant Waite, of Starbeck. They both look well and are ready for another go at old Fritz. I stopped a shrapnel bullet, but it only bruised me, and I was able to go on with my work. However, it gave me a bit of a shake, and I have no wish for another dose. I will shut off now. Wishing you every success.
