ADDINGHAM SOLDIERS’ LETTERS

Mr. Flint has received the following letters in acknowledgement of parcels sent out:–

W.H.S. Barker writes:–“Thanks for parcel. I suppose the show was not held again this year. However, I hope it will be all the go again next year, and that I shall have the pleasure of being there, because I do not think this job will last quite another 12 months. I managed to get hold of our old district paper the other day, and I noticed that two or three of the Addingham boys are mentioned. Young Keighley was one of them. He was lucky to get a happy wound, because this little push which is now on is not what one could call a picnic. A large number of fine fellows have gone under, and much to our sorrow we lost our major, Major T.S. [S.B.] Maufe, late of Ilkley. He was one of the best.”
