Gordon,

Have you seen this site, it lists the Portadown men who appear on the war memorial John Martin is one of two men from Water Street who were with the Irish Fusiliers

Portadown War Memorial

I couldn't find a reference in Soldiers died to a Sgt John Martin who was from Portadown, although one is listed as 10261 Cpl John Martin from Armagh who died of wounds on 15/7/16.

I will check throgh the listing of men I took from the battalion diaries and see if there is any reference there.

Editor of 'The Portadown Times' is David Armstrong.

E-mail address should be edpt@mortonnewspapers.com

Drop him an information appeal via e-mail with anything else you have and he'll do the business for you ... tell him I sent you.
