As we proceed through the years 2014 to 2018, I intend to publish the names of the fallen from Bishopthorpe in both Link and Bishopthorpe dot net in the month which marked the centenary of their deaths.
As well as spending a few moments thinking of this man and his family, I hope that you find the details of some interest.
