he is in the list of evacuated men in 'amateur soldiers' (K W Mitchinson) the history of the 10th battalion  ;)

there is a potted history of the 10th battalion on the main site you may be interested in

If you go to www.jadepublishing.com Amateur soldiers, by k w mitchinson, a history of oldhams volunteers and territorials 1859-1938. price £16.95 code 0-9518098-9-x, it's says it's being re-published.
Hope this helps. Also www.oldham.gov.uk have it listed and they do sell books this may be a longshot.

Hiya... Harry Ackroyd was my great grandfather TOO!! Are you Lyndas husband Phil? I have Harrys membership card from the Oldham Sailors & Soldiers Club showing the address 117 Honeywell Lane. I already have the copy of the medal roll and I have a picture of him with his comrades which I guess from reading all the previous info here that it was taken at Gallipoli.I have all the info on Lilly Burslem too from researching the Addison family history.What a find!
