Sergeant Arthur H Yeoman


Harrogate Herald - 5th September 1917


Arthur H Yeoman says : Things are "very busy" out here, but not the same kind of business as at home, but I think it will soon be over. Anyway, I hope so. It is really boiling hot here just now, scorching absolutely. I was speaking to Sergeant Linfoot yesterday; he has just returned from Harrogate off leave. He was proceeding to his unit "up the line". If any of your readers have any magazines they have done with, I should be very pleased to share them among the lads. Things are growing better and hotter round here, but the weather is with us. PS - Your letter to the boys is extra good. I wish we could get more messages like it.

Sergeant Arthur H Yeoman writes : Dear Mr Breare, Many thanks for paper received. I must tender to you my thanks for your kindness in sending the Herald out to me, keeping in my mind the old town and the happenings therein. Your message to the boys on active service has always been interesting and inspiring, and you have spared no time or trouble in your effort to get comforts for those who were fighting their country's battles. Plainly speaking, "You have done your bit". A good many will never return, nor have an opportunity of thanking you for your kindness, but you can rest assured that whenever I met any of them they always had a good word to say about you. I am at present in Lille, a fine city occupied by the Germans until October 17th, 1918. the Germans did very little damage here. I think they must have realised what the consequences would be.

W H Breare letter

I have had a very nice letter from Sergeant Arthur H Yeoman, which, if space permits, you will probably see in another column. He writes eloquently and feelingly of the boys who will never come home.
