Private Walter Ibbotson


Harrogate Herald 8th December 1915

On our picture page we reproduce the portrait of Private W Ibbotson, of the 9th West Yorkshire Regiment, whom resided at 13 Belford Square, Tower Street, Harrogate, and whose death is reported at the Dardanelles. The circumstances are lamentably sad, for on Thursday morning his wife received a letter from her husband dated October 12th, stating he was in good health, and on Friday morning the War Office message arrived to say that he had died on board the ship Lanfrane from pneumonia on the 25th November. Mrs Ibbotson is left with four young children, the oldest being only six years of age. Private Ibbotson, before enlisting a year ago last October, was employed by Mr W Burkinshaw, builder, etc., of Harrogate.
