Private J Wilson


Harrogate Herald - 16th January 1918

Roll of Honour

Mrs Wilson, of 39 East Parade, Harrogate, has had intimation from the War Office that her eldest son, Private J F Wilson (West Yorks), is a prisoner at Limburg. The family had not heard from him for a month, but had no idea that anything had happened to him. Private Wilson was previously wounded a year ago last September in an attack at Thiepval, being shot in one leg and the other torn by the barbed wire. He recovered, however, after a visit to Blighty, and had been back at the front about a year. His younger brother, Private Norman Wilson, was killed in February, 1916, and his youngest brother, Private J Wilson, who also fought with his eldest brother on the Somme and elsewhere, is now with the Royal Scots in Ireland.
