Private J R Wood


Harrogate Herald  -  24th November 1915

Private J R Wood writes : Allow me first of all to thank you for the kindness in sending me the Knaresborough Post, which I have received each week. We have had some very rainy weather of late, and yesterday (November 17th) we had our first fall of snow. Hoping you are in good health and wishing your paper every success.

Harrogate Herald - 29th December 1915

The committee of Knaresborough ladies who organised a Xmas gift fund for sending parcels to local soldiers and sailors with the expeditionary forces and on the high seas have been deeply gratified and richly rewarded with a shoal of appreciative letters received by Miss J M Alexander (hon. secretary) from the boys on service for King and country. We have pleasure in inserting the first batch, and others will be given in subsequent issues :

December 19th - Dear Madam, Allow me first of all to thank you, as hon. Secretary of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Comforts Committee, for the parcel which has been forwarded to me. I am sure a nicer parcel could not have been sent, and the contents will be thoroughly enjoyed. I saw in the Knaresborough Post what a good concert you had had, and only wished I could have been present to enjoy the entertainment. In conclusion, I wish you a happy Christmas and the brightest of a New Year. Again thanking you, I remain, yours truly, J R Wood.
