Hello Philip

I do not have any photos that I can offer you but was wondering if you had any of my Great Uncle William H Pemberton. He was 29 when he was killed in Flanders in 1916. He had joined the Shropshire Light Infantry then was transferd to the Machine Gun Corps. Any help you can offer is appreciated.

 

Kind regards

Ron Pemberton
