John was born in 1887 and is recorded as living at 13 Woodfield St, Crumpsall, Manchester. He also served as 79078 in the Royal Defence Corps.
he enlisted in May 1915 and went overseas to France in April 1916 where he served with the 1st Battalion. He served in the Borders until December 1916 where we presume he was injured and returned home and transferred to the RDC. He was discharged in December 1918 already having qualified for the Silver War Badge (numbered B314060). His discharge was due to an injury to his back.
We think we find him in 1939 at 45 Grange Drive Manchester with his family where he is recorded as a commercial traveller.
