also just to add a bit of info... Seth Broadbent who witnessed Lilly & Harrys marriage was Lillys half brother (her mother Caroline had been married before and was a widow with children when she married Lillys father John William Burslem) Harry & Lillys daughter Florence (my maternal grandmother) was born on 8.12 1910 not 18th.

according to my records the only battalion to arrive at gallipoli actually on the 5/5/15 was the 9th battalion (hence my guess) but they all arrived around that time. we now have to check the medal rolls to be certain, so you'll have to bear with us for the moment

the membership card I have shows him as belonging to the 1/10 manchester regiment. I seem to remember a family story that he was "gassed" in the war?? Is it possible to confirm that in any way? Thanks Jenny
