Anthony & John William Shaw

Service Number: 56112
Date of Birth: 1870 / 1900
Date of Death:

This picture is labelled Anthony Shaw, but the only Anthony Shaw who appears in the 1911 census living in Turton would have been 44 years old in 1914 (beyond the age limit for volunteering and conscription), although that did not stop everyone (see biography of William Cooper and Orrell Whitehead). The man in the photo does not appear to be that old.
