Harry was born in Oldham in 1924 to parents William & Annie. He was returning to Catterick Camp in December 1946 after leave spent with his wife Annie who he had married in Middleton earlier that year, when the bike on which he was a pillion passenger was in a collision on the icy road. Neither rider was wearing a crash helmet, Harry was killed, the driver had minor injuries. Harry had not yet been demobbed from active service so his name was added to the war memorial.
