Sapper H Wright

 
 

Harrogate Herald - 2nd January 1918

Letters

Sapper H Wright writes : I am pleased to say Sapper E Bielby is with me in this company, so we often have a talk about the old town. Just at present he is at home on leave, so no doubt he will have a lot to tell me when he gets back. I am always glad to read of the good work you and many more are doing. I think Harrogate has done its bit, and a bit over. With the best wishes for the New Year and good health and prosperity to carry on your work. Hoping the early stages of 1918 will see the dawn of brighter days for all.

 

Harrogate Herald - 9th January 1918

W H Breare letter

Sapper H Wright, RE, of 13 Glendown, New Park, was an interesting caller. He has been out two years and four months and once in hospital with trouble other than a wound. He worked for Mr Ryder 18 years, is in the Ulster Division, which contains many Yorkshire lads. Young Wilcocks, who called only just before Christmas, is the only Harrogate lad close to him. Wright has had a fairly rough time. Only a month's rest in two years. One of Wright's brothers was killed in September. He had gone out for the fifth time after four times wounded. He has had some close shaves.
