17901 Pte L Goddard 20th Bn Manchester Regt
« on: March 06, 2008, 07:16:42 AM »
Hi, i am trying to research 2 soldiers - Pte Lawrence Goddard (and Lt Charles E Stewart MM, MID ( KIA Sept 1916) see seperate thread) both who served with the 20th Pals Bn. I would be grateful for any information about the men or movements of the battalion during WW1.

Many thanks, Rick
