The other was Alfred Martin, who never recovered from being gassed in the trenches, and died ten years after the war had ended.

Alfred Martin Pte. 386028 A.S.C. lived at 9 Jubilee St. Ossy. worked for Enfield Manufacturing Co.

Both of those lived in Oswaldtwistle.

Another great grandfather lived in Accrington, by the name of Issac John Rushton. I presume he served in the war. (Issac could be spelled Isaac, I can't read my own writing.)

No record of an Isaac John Rushton.

We've certainly photographs, medals, and other paperwork relating to Alfred Martin.
May I, at your convenience copy the photo of Alfred Martin for my collection of Heroes.
