Journal on the Clegg Brothers from Oldham and their War Memorial Plaque.

Sergeant John & Lieutenant James Clegg of 6th & 10th Battalions Manchester Regiment died in Gallipoli in the fighting of 1915.  Their mother endowed a bed in Oldham Royal Infirmary and the plaque was installed near to it.  I received the plaque a few years ago and have now researched the men and the plaque.  Here is their story:-

The plaque will be delivered to the Manchester Regiment Museum when it reopens.
