Private John H Walker


Harrogate Herald  - 10th January 1917


John H Walker writes : 

Dear Mr Breare, Just a line to say I received razor (safety) with thanks, this dinner-time, and am highly pleased with it as it is a good one. I had given it up as lost as it has been a long while on the way, but I saw it was wrongly addressed. All the same it found the owner, and I also will write and thank the donor. We are all having very rough weather here now and I will be glad when the winter is over, as it is worse for the boys in the trenches. What do you think of the Kaiser now? I think he has broke the ice for peace, but time will tell. I will draw it to a close, thanking you once again and wishing you a happy and prosperous New Year.

PS - There are thousands of Christmas parcels that have not arrived here yet.


Harrogate Herald - 5th December 1917

W H Breare letter

I had Private John H Walker, of 53 Grove Road, Harrogate, in to see me. He is on ten days' leave. He has been 16 weeks ill in the 3rd Scottish Hospital, Govan, and before that had been out since February, 1916. he has now to report to York and wait for a Medical Board examination. Perhaps you will remember that he was a committee man of the old Rugby Football Club.
