We are very grateful to the niece of Wilfid Taylor for providing these very evocative photographs, the documents shown and the interesting story of an army family which follows:

The larger photograph (top left) is one taken of the horse inspection on a Sunday by the Commanding Officer and his Staff at Lowther Park Penrith at the summer camp in 1914. The Cumberland and Westmorland Yeomanry (7th Border Regiment) then went straightway south to France, eventually losing their horses as well as their men! Wilfrid is 5th in line from the left, resplendent in his cavalry uniform.

At the outbreak of the war the Taylor family were living at 67 Ashfield Avenue. My Grandad, Robert Taylor had left Waring and Gillows in 1912 unwilling to accept reductions in standards. (He was the "Quality" man of those days and all the woodwork and furniture in the Lancaster Town Hall was "passed " by him.). He lived in a flat in Penny Street and then joined the Army in 153 Coy Royal Defense Corps spending the war years guarding prisoners of war in Skipton. Afterwards he became an Instructor at the rehabilitation centre Squires Gate Blackpool.

Uncle Wilfrid was a very good pianist; he also worked at Waring and Gillows as a carpenter/joiner and intended to marry Lily Calked, the lady mentioned in the wil (extract below). He was my Mother's only Brother. My Father was Thomas Hannon and he enlisted on 9 September 1914 in The King's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment. At some time he was hospitalised in England, and then was transferred to the 6th Lincolnshire Regiment. He was taken prisoner on 27 May 1918 and discharged March 1919.

Wilfrid Taylor's Grandfather William French had been a Militia man serving for 21 years including time in Australiaa and New Zealand. He attested at Rochester Kent on 8 January 1850 aged just over 20. He was severely wounded in the attack on the revbel Camp at Eureka Ballerat Australia on 3 December 1854. He was discharged at Preston as 2865 Sergeant from the 12th Regiment of Foot (The Suffolk Regiment).

My Dad's brother William (Billy) Hannon was born in 1896 at 23 Elgin Street Lancaster and joined the royal Fusiliers at the outbreak of the war. He was killed in action 29 March 1915 -he was only 18 years old and Dad's only Brother.

The pictures on the below are:

Top Left Thomas Hannon The King's Own Royal Regiment. On the top right is a notification from the records office at Preston of the death of Wilfrid "Killed in Action". Bottom right is an extract form Wilfrid's Will "In the event of my death I give my silver watch to Miss L Calkeld. Bottom right is a very sympathetic letter from Fulwood Barracks Preston explaining that the bodies of soldiers in cemeteries "of less than 40 graves" were to be exhumed and reburied; Wilfrid in Warlencourt.
