Pte William Walford 4957 Manchester Regt, previously 5693 Border Regt and later 208720 Rifle Brigade. Disembarked at Gallipoli on 20/7/1915 with the Borders. Discharged on 6/3/1919 with no disability given, died on 2/10/1920 from an unspecified disease. His mother was Mary Ann Shaw of 13 Laundry Street, Pendleton.

Medical form on FMP shows that he was admitted on 9/8/1915 for a bullet wound to the left foot, at which time he was age 27 (so born around 1888).
