Harrogate Herald - 5th September 1917

Letters

Gunner C E Walton writes : 

I am pleased to say that I get the Herald every Monday, and I look forward to its arrival, as it tells us all that is going on in Harrogate. I think your letters to our boys on service are very interesting, also the letters from the boys who are out doing their bit, many of whom I know. Personally I was very sorry to see in the paper that Private G Leaf had been in hospital with trench feet, but hope that he is better now, and that so many Harrogate and district men have made the supreme sacrifice for their country, but I do hope that the war will soon be over, and that they have not given their lives in vain.

 

Harrogate Herald - 27th March 1918

W H Breare letter

Gunner C E Walton, Royal Garrison Artillery Siege Battery, who lives at 18 Albert Road, looked in to see me on Saturday. His mother lives at Eastville Terrace. Walton has been nine months out. Unfortunately he has no Harrogate companions with him. Baxter, signaller, of Oatlands Mount, was with him at one time, but unfortunately was wounded, went home, and when he recovered was transferred to another unit. Walton has been well all the time, but he has had some narrow squeaks. They have been seven months at Ypres front, but are now resting. He has been at St Quentin and Menin Road, as also at Paschendaele.
