Dear Macc
 would you have any information on Francis Henry Smith who seved in the boer war and first world war and survived, im sure he was in the manchesters. He would have been living in colyhurst at the time, he was born 1883 in Middlesborogh yorks

George Moore he was killed at paschendale i think october 4th 1917 he was born in crewe, living in newton heath manchester in 1914.

William Carney i know he was in royal navy 1909-1914, then in manchester 12th battalion and was killed in action 7th july 1916 at the somme.
