Original message (posted by norman prior)
In 1939 several of us were enrolled in the Militia after signing up for six months training in the army. That six months lasted seven years in my case.
Arthur Hayes, lived on the opposite side to Lloyds pub.He was at Dunkirk in the same Company as me. He survived the war but I think moved away.
Jimmy Grundy, red/sandy haired lad.
Wilf Young was another. He was at Dunkirk and after doing a rearguard action with the Bren Carriers, caught up with Wilf, His Unit was awaiting transport to get out of the area. We had a chat and He had a good drink out of my water bottle. sorry Wilf there is nothing to eat.Great crowd of lads. I settled in Middleton and lost touch with many.
I don't expect many to remember those names.
