Extract from a local paper 17 August 1918:

PTE. WILLIAM GIBSON

Mrs. Gibson, 48, Bury-street, Radcliffe Hall, has been informed that her husband, Private William Gibson, Cheshire Regiment, has been killed by shrapnel while coming out of the trenches. An officer has written the following letter: "I regrest to inform you that your husband met his death yesterday from shrapnel wounds. He was a valued member of our company, being an excellent Lewis gunner. He was also very popular among his fellows, so we are sorry to have lost him." He adds that it may be some consolation to known that Private Gibson died a true patriot for his country, and that he had a church burial. A chaplain writes:- "I am writing to express to you the sincere sympathy that we all feel for you in your grear loss. It was late on Sunday as our men were getting back from the trenches that they were caugh by enemy shell fire, in which eight of our men, including your husband, Private W. Gibson, were killed. It may afford you some consolation to know that his sacrifice will not be forgotten by our Saviour, who laid down His life for us." He also states that Private Gibson's death was instantaneous. Private Gibson enlisted in May, 1917, in the Lancashire Fusiliers, being later transferred to the Chehsire Regiment. In civil life he was employed by Messrs. J. C. Hamer, at their Hope Mill. His name is on the rolls of honour at the Parish Church and at St. Paul's Wesleyan Methodist Church. Three brothers are serving in the army.

Obituary of Private Harold Shard

Mr. and Mrs Shard of 15 Morley Road, off Countess Lane, Radcliffe have received official intimation of the death in action on July 31st, of their son, Private Harold Shard who was 22 years of age. He joined the Bury Territorials five years ago and went with them to Turton, Egypt and the Dardenelles. He returned to England owing to dysentry and 16 months ago went to France with the Lancashire Fusiliers. He was employed in the bottling department of Seed's Brewery. The family are associated with the Radcliffe Parish Church, having formally lived in that parish. Mr. and Mrs. Shard have another son William in France_ His sister received a letter on Tuesday from Capt. Hamer of the same battalion from which we have taken the following:- Your brother was with Lieutenant Dickenson in a very advanced position on July 31st-August 1st when a sniper's bullet or a stray shot killed them both. This information was given to me by an officer of another battalion who knew Dickenson well. Several people saw your brother along with him a few moments before and should any further news come through you may be sure I will send it on to you at once. It is very hard for me to write any words of comfort, for I know how you will feel the loss of so cheerful, brave and splendid a brother. He was noticed with Lieutenant Dickenson the whole of the time and a braver officer and a braver man never lived. Your brother was always cheerful, willing and cool under fire and it is very hard to lose such men. He lived straight and died bravely, which is the finest thing any man can do. Will you please accept my very deepest sympathy in your sorrow.

James

Private, Lancashire Fusiliers. Action date 28 June 1916. Awarded the Victoria Cross (V.C.). Born 9 July 1895 in Top Bank, Radcliffe, Lancashire. Died 22 January 1972, aged 76, in Torquay, Devon. He was 20 years old, and a Private in the 2/5th Battalion, The Lancashire Fusiliers (55th (West Lancashire) Infantry Division), when on 28 June 1916 his actions in Ficheux, France earned him the Victoria Cross. He later attained the rank of Corporal. His citation from The London Gazette (Supplement). 9 September 1916. p. 8870, reads:

For most conspicuous bravery. During an attack on the enemy's position this soldier was the leading man, and, entering their trench, shot two sentries and cleared two of the traverses.
After our object had been gained and retirement ordered, Private Hutchinson, on his own initiative, undertook the dangerous task of covering the retirement, and he did this with such gallantry and determination that the wounded were removed into safety. During all this time this gallant soldier was exposed to fierce fire from machine-guns and rifles at close quarters.
