Sorry, I forgot to say, there could (should) be a Sheffield connection, possibly Atterciffe. Are there any men from Attercliffe with either just George or George H

Sorry to be a pain

Regards

Robert.

If you are interested I am creating a Roll of Honour book for Darnall (in the making) would apreciate any photos of soldiers from Darnall to be entered in a gallery at the back. George Wilkinsons name is on the list.

You might have noticed ther is no WW1 memorial at Church of Christ in Darnall, this went missing in the mid 80's if you have any info on its whereabouts please PM me,

Sue
