Frank Dunn’s Grandson, visited the GUEST BOOK and introduced me to his Grandad’s record. This post was originally to help Clive. Clive then provided some remarkable photos of his Grandad’s postcards. They are shown here as a gallery and provide some great examples on photos showing the Pals at Heaton Park and during convalescence. Many are subsequently used in the static content of the main site. Huge Thanks to Clive.
Frank enlisted on 2/9/14 and trained / served in the same places as featured on this site for Arthur Bell. Frank was posted in XII Platoon of C Company. Clive indicated that Frank was “was wounded (shrapnel and gas) shortly after and returned home.” I am aware that the Germans used gas shells on the night of 30th July (Lieutenant Miller was killed by one); and also during the advance on Trones Wood on 9th July.
Frank recovered at home and was discharged with a Silver War Badge on 10/12/18. The SWB Roll is on line but I can’t publish it due to Copyright.
