Boy, 6, looks for family of WWI soldier Capt T Cartman


A six- year-old boy from Greater Manchester is trying to find the family of a soldier who wrote a journal during World War I.

Capt T Cartman, a distinguished soldier who was wounded in France, became a prisoner of war and was awarded the Military Cross.

His personal journal - containing letters, photos and military awards - was discovered in a skip in Cleveleys, Lancashire by Oliver Booth's father.

Now Oliver and his classmates at Peel Brow School in Ramsbottom are appealing for help to try to find Capt Cartman's family.
