Joseph Arnison
« on: November 04, 2008, 08:05:53 PM »
Can anyone help me find out anything about him or any other Arnisons perhaps related to him. He was born in 1871 in Newbiggin Dacre, married to Mary Elizabeth Adshead in 1892 in Hulme. Died in Salford (Lancs) 1924. He fought in the Boer war and the First World War. The only reference to the regiment is 'the Manchesters'. He worked as a barman at the Gaping Goose public house in Manchester.
This is all the information I have. Anything about him or any possible relatives would be very helpful. Thanks

Hi Daniel

and welcome to the forum

I can't find him going abroad with the Manchesters in WW1, hopefully one of our boer war experts will be able to throw some light on his earlier career

Thanks very much, I do think that he did lie about his age so there is a good chance that it is him. Thanks once again.
