13 October 1917 - Pte Clifford Haley died on this day

Pte Clifford Haley, 6th Battalion, KOYLI.

Clifford Haley was born in Gomersal, West Yorkshire in 1898 to Mr and Mrs Charles Haley. After attending St Saviour's Boys' School and the Ravensthorpe Congregational Church Sunday School, Clifford joined his father in working at Hartley Brothers, curriers, in Ravensthorpe. In his spare time Clifford played the cornet in the Dewsbury Borough Brass Band, of which his father was conductor.

Clifford enlisted on 18 February 1917 and, after his training, he was sent to France on 18 August, joining the 6th Battalion, KOYLI in the 14th (Light) Division. The battalion's War Diary tells how they were ordered to occupy the front line south-east of Polygon Wood. The conditions were grim: "The position consisted chiefly of shell holes, but some much damaged trenches were also used [The two] streams had become practically impassable; marsh and waterlogged shell holes for a width of about thirty yards formed very safe flanks. Our front was also covered by a marsh formed by the junction of the two streams. Only one passable place was found in the Reutel to Ypres Road." The diary goes on to describe how the whole position was overlooked by the Germans which "...caused some trouble with sniping and machine gun fire. The battalion was shelled almost every night and a good deal during the day."

On Saturday, 13 October 1917 Clifford lost his life. It was raining on the day and Corporal N Murray had (according to an article appearing in the Dewsbury Reporter) made way for Clifford in "...a little shelter in the trench...when a shell burst on the top..." . The explosion caused Corporal Murray, Clifford and another soldier to be buried. When Corporal Murray managed to extricate himself, he found that his two comrades had been killed

Clifford's family received a letter at their home at 65 Sackville Street from Second Lieutenant Cyril A Taylor and Corporal Murray in which they and the Company Commander expressed sympathy in the family's bereavement.

Clifford has no known grave and is commemorated at the Tyne Cot Memorial to the Missing.

Mail Tribune 100, Oct. 13, 1917

TEACHERS URGE STUDY AT HOME FOR PUPILS


The teachers in the elementary schools and high schools of Medford, desiring to co-operate with the parents in getting the best results from the advantages offered in the public schools and to increase the efficiency of the teaching, are prompted to issue this open letter to parents and citizens of the City of Medford.

In general, it may be said that regular attendance, punctuality and obedience are absolutely essential to success in any system of schools. Medford is particularly fortunate in having very few homes in which children are detained from school for any causes but those most necessary.

Home study is very necessary. Every pupil in the high school has daily four or more lessons to prepare. One or two of theses can be prepared in school during vacant periods, thus leaving work to be done at home. The length of time to be spent on out-of-school study varies with different pupils and on different days. It is, therefore, difficult to lay down rules to govern home study, but in general it may be said that unless a pupil is doing considerable systematic study at home every day it is certain that he is not getting all his school work well done. If pupils report that they have no home study to do, parents should communicate at once with the superintendent or principal, so that matters may be righted and failure may be avoided.

It is usually well understood by parents that social distractions, especially on school day evenings, are nearly always fatal to successful school work. It is now the rule in nearly all families that pupils spend their evenings regularly in the home excepting on Friday and Saturday. Since school studies are sufficient to occupy all their time of pupils, except such as is taken for recreation or needed service at home, any special outside recreation or entertainments handicap the pupils in their lesson preparation.

13 OCTOBER 1917: The arrest in Paris of Bolo Pasha...

... a native of Marseilles who was in the service of the- ex-Khedive, has led- to the discovery that he was a German agent. He obtained no less- than £330,700 from Count Bernstorff through American banks, and used part of the money to acquire an interest in the Pads Journal. He was clever enough to persuade a leading French Judge, 1f. Monier, to vouch for his good faith. Telegrams exchanged between Count Bernstorff and the German Foreign Office have, however, come out of Mr. Lansing's inexhaustible " lucky-bag " to prove that Bolo was a trusted German spy. Fortunately, he does not seem to have done much mischief with the large sums sent to him from Berlin. indeed, the elaborate Secret .Service, on which our enemies spent over L5,000,000 in- America alone, has, on the whole, done more harm to Germany than to the Allies.
