STEETONS ROLL OF HONOUR

Up to date there are now 30 Steeton men who are either serving as regulars, Kitchener’s men or Territorials, who have all volunteered for foreign service.

Coppack, Prince Dawson, Fred Ellison, Fred Greenwood (wounded but returned to his regiment), Tom Roberts, Wesley Shone, William Wademan, John Wilson, Alfred Metcalfe, John Peake, William Naylor, Herbert Pickles, Arthur Lee (wounded), James O’Hara, Harry J.
