My Mum used to tell me stories of her Dad fighting in the War. Unfortunately he died before I was born; my Mum died quite a while ago too. I’ve recently looked at my family tree and I decided to find ‘Bill’s’ war records too. Central Library held everything I needed to know, it was a wonderful feeling finally finding him and I realised everything my Mum said was true. Now I’ve found him I just don’t want to forget.
Born 1888 William Henry Harrison served in the Manchester Regiment from 1914 to 1926.
