Dick Whitehead

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 20th January 1915

W H Breare letter

The first German helmet reached Harrogate on Friday. It was sent from France by Dick Whitehead, whose wife despatched it to the Herald Office to be photographed and exhibited in the window. It had been worn by one of the Landsturm, who was shot in the back of the head. The ole caused by the bullet is plainly discernible. The helmets are heavy, uncomfortable things; for show rather than for comfortable service, we all think.

 

Harrogate Herald - 22nd August 1917

W H Breare letter

By the way, I saw Dick Whitehead, who is home on leave, the other day, and he was just as buoyant and as hopeful as ever. He had a good deal to tell me, but in it all there was no grousing - nothing but happy hopefulness and contentment. Most of you know breezy Dick. Well, he is just the same old chap and stirs the atmosphere social as powerfully as ever. Good old Dick!
