Best guess is Walter Hawksworth Pte.57817. Later 31300 Border Regiment. He survived the war.

I decided to resist, but if anyone else is interested the medals can be found at Antiques Manchester opposite Old Mill Antiques, Wrigley Head, off Oldham Road, Hollinwood, Manchester. Could be a local lad.

Mark, problem is you need his serial number, if you get it it may be that he was transferred later , his MIC will confirm.

his medals would have been issued on his initial regiment and he was killed or wounded later

Hi Chaz,

As David posted above there are 5 W Hawksworths on the CWGC none are Manchester Regiments and as per GWF1967 post none are Border regiment. Somewhat academic now as I decided against buying them.
