William's Story

My Grandfather William Sampson Walkeden was brought up in Staffordshire , Rugely then Utoxeter.

Fought in WW1 in Grenadier Guards, i believe in 1st Battalion, served in Northern Ireland between wars then reinlisted in Guards for WW2 I think in 2nd Battalion. Iam nearly certain thathe attained sargeant Major whilst in first battalion but not sure of rank in WW2
