Private George Henry Ward


Harrogate Herald - 21st November 1917


George H Ward writes : 

I generally read your letter to the boys first, then you get to know some of them that have been on leave. Lots of people say this is a convalescent home, but I have not found it so. All I have seen of it is hills. We are just like hermits. I have been up the line ever since I came out here - that is over a year since - and I have enjoyed good health considering the climate. I hope my brother came to see you when he was on leave from France. I hear he has won the MM, and I hope he has the luck to pull through. I see lots of Harrogate lads out here. There are only two of us in my regiment - Billy Womack and myself, and he has just come back.
