Memorial unveiled

I would like to draw your attention to the efforts of the Preston Pals War Memorial Trust, and the successful erection of the new memorial at Preston train station.

The plaque was unveiled on 22nd July 2012 and commemorates the memory of the men of D Company, 7th Battalion, Loyal North Lancashire Regiment.

Congratulations to everyone involved, a fitting tribute to the brave men of Preston who were prepared to lay down their lives for our Country.

Check out the Preston Pals Memorial website for more information.

One Response to Preston Pals War Memorial

  1. Clive Shaw says:

    My grandfather, 15400 Private John James Johnson served and was wounded in action in 1916 with the Loyal North Lancashires. Like many survivors, he said little about his service, but having been wounded by shrapnel in his hip and thigh he was up and advancing; a genuine hero.
    An earlier enquiry to LNLancs a couple of years ago got no response. Can you help or suggest a line of enquiry? Pop probably enlisted in Bolton or Preston.
