Robert Wardman

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 11th July 1917

W H Breare letter

Rifleman H Blackburn, KRR, got leave on account of illness of his mother, but he was not in time to see her ere she passed away. Blackburn is the fifth son of John Blackburn, 55 Stonefall Avenue, Starbeck. His eldest brother, William, was with the Canadians, but had rheumatic fever, and was discharged. He may be well enough later to rejoin. The second brother, Albert, is in Salonica; the third, Norman, in Alexandria; Horace, the youngest, is in Ireland. With my caller at the Front is Bob Wardman, Regent Street, who worked at the Co-op, in High Harrogate; Corporal Mount; Ireland, of King's Road; and Suttill, of New Park. Fifteen months since Blackburn was home. He is continually meeting Harrogate boys, though his regiment is a London one. It was formed by the late Earl of Feversham.

 

Harrogate Herald - 1st August 1917

W H Breare letter

Bugler W Kendall, of the KRR, son of Mr & Mrs W Kendall, 1 Avenue Terrace, Bilton, has been invalided home with shell shock and trench fever. He is at Gosforth Hospital, Newcastle. He came in to see me the other day. His father is employed at the Royal Baths. Kendall had four days leave from hospital. He wishes to be remembered to Robert Wardman, also to Fred Joseph if he has got up the line again, and Harry Blackburn. Will Fred Joseph write to Kendall! Kendall met C Rowley, ASC, who used to drive for Standing's. When charging over he came across Sergeant Robinson, Corporal Bilton, Halliwell, Mayfield Grove, all of the Beechwood Boys.

 

Harrogate Herald - 24th October 1917

W H Breare letter

Bugler Kendall, KRR, was invalided home with trench fever and has been at the Gosforth Hospital, Newcastle-on-Tyne. He came into see me on Friday quite recovered and looking very fit. I noticed that he wore a very happy, buoyant expression, and later it leaked out that he was to be married the next day - that is last Saturday - at Christ Church. The name of the bride is Jennie Windsor, of 21 South Park Road. We will wish them, boys (all together, now!), every happiness. She is the only daughter of Mr & Mrs Ernest Windsor. Kendall is the elder son of Mr & Mrs W Kendall, of 1 Avenue Terrace, Bilton. The best man at Kendall's wedding was Robert Wardman, 23rd KR, who was then on leave from the Front.
