The Twelve Days of the Centenary Christmas
On the 1st Day of July – our family returned to Montauban
On the 2nd Battle of Ypres – we searched for a cousin
On the 3rd day we review 3 War Memorials
My grandfather Arthur Bell was a Foundationer at the Manchester Clerks and Warehouseman Orphan’s School. The School War Memorial – Roll of Honour continues to be a research theme and I’m hoping to see the Cheadle Hulme School archive published digitally in 2017.
The Co-operative Wholesale Society War Memorial in Manchester became a project last Christmas. There are extensive records for the Company, which produced a detailed Roll of Honour on The Manchester Regiment Forum.
Merchiston Castle School in Edinburgh provided the backbone of Officers in the 17th Battalion Manchester Regiment. Research continues on this Roll of Honour.
