If you are or possibly know any members of Harold Marsh’s family or any of his relatives: Parents George and Mary, brothers John, Percy, Norman Fred, George, Len, Lawrence, sisters Sarah and Hilda can you please get in touch. The Legion will have a stall and can be contacted at Pudsey Carnival this Saturday, the intention is to hold the service after the Carnival is finished, EVERYONE is welcome to come along and remember Harold.
With thanks to Rosemary Ward and Jonathan Ambler for sharing. This fantastic booklet gives an insight into the people involved in both the building and unveiling of the Cenotaph. A special mention should be made of the four children who unveiled the Bronze name tablets: Annie Rhodes, Ivy Ackroyd, Willie Jowett and Ernest Harris - they all lost their fathers during the Great War.
