Private Walter LAWRENCE, 24767
Geoff Lawrence, grandson of Walter Lawrence, recognised his grandfather in one of John Sheen's photographs. Geoff sent the following information on Walter Lawrence;-
Front Row third from left. is Walter Lawrence from 154 Victoria Road Middlesbrough.
His Army number was 24767 attached to C Company (13th Battalion). This info is from his Army pocket bible.
He was wounded in France in July 1916 and again in Italy. I have a photo of him in pith helmet and putees on his return.
He returned home to manage a Hintons Grocery branch in Stockton but died in 1931 due to complications associated with his wounds which never fully healed.
