Two Wigan Album viewers saw their grandfathers in the group photo. They were "Sandra Moore" and “xxStuartxx”.
Technology is always changing and now I have an “enhanced" portrait of their grandfathers. I know Sandra especially would welcome this since it’s the only photo she has of him. Dick was a veteran of the Gallipoli campaign, he told my father that when they waded ashore they felt like tin ducks in a fairground shooting range with nowhere to hide, how he survived is a miracle.
Anyone “out there” who could help me get these to their grandchildren? Thank you.
I wonder if my Grandfather knew Mr Prescott, he was also wounded at Gallipoli. I can believe they were like tin ducks wading ashore. I remember my dad telling me when he came back from there his hair had turned white.
Well done Keith I used to go in the Crispin in the 1960s with the lads from st Catherine's boy's club
