Private A Wilson

Harrogate Herald - 8th December 1915

Private A Wilson, King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, who hails from Darley, writes : 

November 15th, 1918. I hope you will forgive me for not thanking you earlier for the Nidderdale Herald, which you have sent so regularly. I am an old Darleyite, and I like to read the local news. I notice photos and see names of several people that I know, but have not yet met a Nidderdale man in the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry. I have been out at the Front about five months, and have spent the greatest part of that time at Kemmel, but have since been at Vermelles, Loos, and Hulloch. We had a warm time of it occasionally, and I have lost several valuable friends. We are now in camp in a far-off country, where there is no fighting. Perhaps you will know where, but owing to military reasons I am unable to tell you. I will now conclude. Wishing you and your paper continued success.
