good morning all
firstly many thanks for the information on here about Ken, he lived only round the corner from where i type this, i never knew Ken, but i came across him whilst researching my books on all from galgate who served in WW1 and WW2
he was a french polisher for waring and gillow both before and after WW2, and there is a prize awarded in his name at the Galgate horticultural show.
does anyone have a copy of his book? ironically the one he gave to the local history society sems to have been lent out and not returned!
another Galgate man -Maurice Iliingworth DSM -served in the same flotilla as Ken, i will post details soon
