Franklin Bros - Seaforth Highlanders


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm trying to find out a bit more about my great uncles. Firstly is Ernest Franklin, 7th Btn, Seaforths. I beleive he was killed on the 25/9/15 aged 19 at Loos after just arriving from Blighty. Secondly is Ernests older brother John Franklin who also served in the Seaforths but as a sergent, I think he survived and settled in Amiens. Has anyone got any further information about them? More info on john or where he would have served would be excellent.

Many Thanks
