James's Story

James was killed fighting in Palestine at E-Salt aged 22 years.

I have no personal memories of the man: he died in 1918 and is a valued part of my family's history. James was the son of an English mother, an Irish father and the grandson of Scottish and Irish Grandparents. James was killed fighting in Palestine at E-Salt aged 22 years. He is my first cousin twice removed.
