Mike Williams


Harrogate Herald - 31st October 1917

W H Breare letter

Private E Williams, attached to an aerial employment company, called to thank me for a watch sent out by me from money contributed by the Mayoress. I am glad to hear it goes well. My visitor's mother lives in Union Street, and he has a brother, Mike Williams, who was also of the WYs, but now of a Middlesex regiment. Williams himself was billiard marker at the Crown Hotel. He came over last Wednesday, October 24th, to go before a special medical board at Oswestry, where doubtless he will be declared unfit, as he has a defective foot and cannot now march. He had rather a remarkable experience on one occasion. His company was warned of a bombardment, but he never heard it and slept throughout, whilst the rest of his companions took shelter in dugouts. J W Smith is in his company, and he met a corporal in the RFA who lives in Denmark Street, but the name has escaped him.
