Oldham Battalion, Manchester Regiment (circa 1914), at Kinmel Park Barracks

Mike Madden writes:

“I have attached 2 pictures. One of the Oldham Battalion (Pals) Manchester Regiment. And one with my Grandfather’s section, George Madden, seated in the centre of the front row. I think both pictures were taken in 1914 at Kinmel Park Barracks”
