Fred Hargreaves 1916

Note from Patrick:
This is my Grandad Fred Hargreaves, of Sutton Mill, who unlike the 40 names listed on the War Memorial in Sutton Park, was lucky. He was wounded at Passchendaele, but recovered and came home to his wife and young family in Main Street in March 1919.

A replica of this uniform was worn by sentry Connor Lyman at the ceremony to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the unveiling of the War Memorial on 19th March 2011.
