MISSING NEARLY TWELVE MONTHS NOW REPORTED KILLED – PRIVATE A. T. LUTY

After being reported as missing for nearly twelve months, Private Arthur Tom Luty, son of the late Mr. William Luty, master stonemason, Skipton, has now been officially reported as killed.

On looking through our file for last year we find it recorded that in November the late Mrs. Luty (the deceased soldier’s mother, whose death occurred recently) received unofficial information that her son, who was with the Green Howards, was a prisoner of war, and that several letters sent to him had all been returned with the word ‘wounded’ endorsed on the back of them. Mrs. Luty wrote to the War Office, and was at first informed that they knew no particulars, but later she received an official notice stating that her son had been wounded on September 26th (at Loos), and that further details would be forwarded as obtained. Shortly afterwards another soldier in the same Regiment wrote Mrs. Luty saying that an officer had informed him that Pte. Luty was a prisoner of War as well as wounded.

Private Luty, whose widow now lives in Nottingham, was a native of Skipton, and was called up at the outbreak of war as a reservist.

Pte. Frank Luty, a brother of deceased, has been at the Front with the Scots Guards, and is now being nursed in a hospital at Leicester from wounds in the right foot and right arm.

ANOTHER SKIPTON SOLDIER WOUNDED

Mrs. Luty, of Water Street, Skipton, has two sons fighting at the Front, and on Friday morning week she received a postcard from her elder son, Private Arthur Luty, of the ‘Green Howards’, stating that he had been wounded and had been admitted into a hospital in France. He did not mention whether or not he had been seriously wounded. Mrs. Luty’s younger son, Private Frank Luty, is in the Scots Guards, and though he has been at the Front since the outbreak of the war he is still in the best of health.

PRIVATE A.T. LUTY, OF SKIPTON, A PRISONER OF WAR

News has been received, though not officially, that Pte. Arthur Tom Luty, of the Green Howards, son of Mrs. Luty of Water Street, Skipton, is a prisoner of war. It is six weeks since a letter was received from him, and though several letters have been sent to him they have been returned with the word ‘wounded’ written across them. Mrs. Luty wrote to the War Office, and she received a reply to the effect that they had no news with regard to Pte. Luty, but as soon as they heard anything they would let her know. Last week she received a notice from the War Office stating that he had been wounded on September 26th, but how and where they did not know. On Sunday a letter was received from a friend of Pte. Luty, who wrote saying that an officer had told him that Private Luty was wounded and had been taken prisoner.

Mrs. Luty has another son, Pte. Frank Luty, of the Scots Guards, serving in France, and a short time ago he came home on five days’ leave.

DEATH OF PRIVATE A.T. LUTY

News has been received of the death of Private Arthur Tom Luty, of the Green Howards, son of the late Mr. William Luty, monumental mason, Keighley Road, Skipton, and of Mrs. Luty, whose death took place a fortnight ago. Private Luty was a reservist when war broke out, and he was reported missing on September 25th 1915, after the battle of Loos. Not having heard from him for six weeks it was feared he had been taken prisoner of war, as several letters had been sent to him and returned with the word ‘wounded’ written across them. Mrs. Luty wrote to the War Office, and she received a reply to the effect that they had no news with regard to Private Luty, but as soon as they heard anything they would let her know. Later she received a notice stating that he had been wounded on September 26th but how and where they did not know. Some time after a letter was received from a friend of Private Luty, who wrote saying that an officer had told him that Private Luty was wounded and had been taken prisoner. Now, however, it is officially stated that he has met his death, the date of which is not given. Private Luty was married, his wife at present residing in Nottingham.

Private Luty has another brother, Private Frank Luty, who is attached to the Scots Guards, and is at present being nursed for wounds in the right foot and right arm at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

    I am thrilled to see some new information on my great uncle Arthur. I did not know he had been in the Sudan so now I’m going to do some more research. Thank you.
