Private John Harrison

Postby mervynH » Thu Jan 29, 2009 5:14 pm

I have a couple of photogaraphs of my grandfather Pvt John Harrison from Litteton nr Evesham, taken in France. One shows him and three others in dress uniform, the other shows him with a group, taken while relaxing with tents in the background. Would anyone be interested in seeing them? Maybe someone would be able to throw more light on when and where taken.

Hi Mervyn

Do you have your Grandfathers Regimental number? I have found 8 Pte J Harrison's in the casualty lists.

John Harrison

Hi
I'm researching my family tree and my grandfather Fredrick Harrison comes from South Littleton as does around 4 or 5 generations before him way back to at least 1810, and 3 generations since. But I can't find John Harrison as yet, but there must be a connection as most of the other Littleton Harrisons are already accounted for.

Do you have any more information , his father... or wife's name for instance

Thanks
