Hi Charles,

I only found out on Thursday that the Manchester Territorials had old style webbing, designed for both Infantry and Cavalary.  It seems 42nd (E Lancs) Div on Garrison duty in Egypt didn't justify the new kit and they entered Gallipoli without the updated equipiment.  THis excellent presentation by Taff Gillingham explains more. I can't explain the spurs. Do you have photos?

The record on George Cogswell's site is incredibly powerful. Your testimony of the Manchester Blitz is outstabding and should be published more widely, including your Father's service..


Hi Tim

The blitz story George has is a condensation of a chapter in a family history book I wrote a couple of years ago. After the Blitz, I was asked by my English teacher to write an account of the night, and the chapter was written from notes I made at that time  ( I attended Manchester Central High School for Boys on Whitworth Street).

I can email the full text if you would like to read it  (cstmorton@rogers.com)
