I'm tracing James Barker of 4 Thompson St Rochdale who was a bandmaster in Rochdale in 1911. He was born in Waterbarn in 1846. He also called himself a Professor of Music in 1901. Ring any bells?
Any pictures of Hollingsworth Lake 1963, I lived there and I had lots but lost them in a fire ! This was the year when we had record low temperatures and very heavy snow fall.
St James Church magazine from November 1934 has some interesting advertisements.
The records of 320,000 troops from the Punjab who fought in the First World War have been found in the basement of a Museum in Pakistan. They have been there unread for some 95 years. At present only 45,000 have been made available and a website is still under development. The records are indexed by village of origin, name, fathers name, district, regiment, caste and rank, the efforts of these brave men is often forgotten.
Those who died in WW1 are commemorated on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website. It is sad that the Neuve-Chapelle Indian Memorial in France, located on the outskirts of the commune of Neuve-Chapelle, in the departement of Pas-de-Calais is seldom visited. This new database however does not just cover those who died but also those who served.
Pictured are servicemen of the Punjab In WW2.
