Morning,

No I don't mind you 'nicking' grandad's piccie off Ancestry - Even with the other 'leg' in the photo we still don't know when, where and if he was in the Manchester Regiment, how he got injured.  Oh why did 60% of records have to be destroyed in WW2 - Both of my Grandfathers records don't appear - how unfortunate is that - My other Grandad wasn't in the Manchester Regiment - He came from Liverpool!
