Those who gave their lives from Yarm ______________________________________
WALKER, Harold. Pte 3057 1/5th DLI.
The following was taken from the Yorkshire Regiment website
Killed in action 24 Apr 1915 aged 20. Son of William and Isabel Walker; brother of Edward. Before enlisting he was employed by Mr E Smith of Red Hall Farm, Castlelevington. Soldiers Died states that he enlisted at Stockton from “Eaglescliffe, Yarm” and he is on Egglescliffe’s Memorial. Other evidence suggests he was probably living at Yarm on enlistment in Nov 1914 and in any event his family were local and so he is recorded here. His name is also included on the Methodist War Memorial. Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial, Belgium
