Author John Hartley  (17th Manchesters: A History of the Battalion and the Men Who Served with it in the Great War: John Hartley Reveille Press) helped produce an interesting Radio interview about Heaton Park as the first home of the Manchester City Battalions.  This is part of the War at Home series.  Listen to it here. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01q7xq3  Good work John.
