Hi everyone, although i have been a passive member of the forum for some time this is my first post.

I collect alsorts to the Manchesters and have just aquired a lovely set of postcards. They all belonged to one man who i think emigrated to Canada just before the first war. He was in the 2nd VB and later the 6th Territorial battalion, i am after any info on him, one of the postcards is of a chap with boer war medals but is not named so i dont know if this is him or a mate, also did he serve with the Canadians in the Great war or come back over here, the postcards actually came from Maine USA.

Anyway, if anyone can find anything i would be very grateful

He is

Charles Lennox

I think his address was

7 Slade Lane Longsight

He may also have owned a restaurant on Peter st in town called Lennox restaurant

I have one address in canada which is

The Nurseries
Loch Lomand Rd
St John
New Brunswick

All the stuff is dated 1906  to 1912 

Thanks in advance for any help
