One thought on “‘Beaconsfield Soldiers & Sailors ‘Welcome Home’ Association c1919

  1. My grandfather, Thomas Birtle, lived at 67 Beaconsfield Street when he enlisted in September 1915. After being wounded in August 1918 he left the army in April 1919 after quite some time in hospital and rehabilitation. I wonder if he had a welcome home from these people?
