    Harold a married man and father of a four-year-old daughter ran the Off Licence at 365 Rochdale Road, Britannia Bacup with his wife Florence. Joining the Civil Defence in 1938 he became the senior A.R.P warden for the Britannia sector until he was called up in 1942.
    At the time of his death, one of his officers wrote a letter to Florence in which he wrote: at the time we were being strongly counter-attacked by the Germans and your husband was in position in his slit trench quite close to me when a mortar bomb dropped within a few yards of his trench and splinter hit him in the head. I can assure you he suffered no pain as he was killed instantaneously. He is buried on the Belgian-Dutch frontier.
