Our Liverpool Boys

I was rather excited to come by a copy of "Our Liverpool Boys", a 32 page booklet produced by Liverpool City Council. "The publication presents the stories of soldiers who were born or bred in the area and have a strong connection with Liverpool."

As Mr GeniAus' Great-Grandfather, Grandfather and Great-Uncles lived in Liverpool and served in WW1 I was hoping to find mention of  one or some of them in the booklet but I guess they missed out because they were born in England. Liverpool born Eric Gladstone Deadman who married Mr GeniAus' Great-Aunt Emily Zara Ball is mentioned in the booklet.

The booklet produced to mark the centenary of World War 1 contains service details, some photographs and biographical sketches on about 40 soldiers from the Liverpool area. It appears to have been collated by Sue Dredge and Julie Senior from Liverpool City Library.
