hello new friends!


My Great Uncle Harold George Macklon was a soldier in the East Surrey Regiment of the British Army 1914-1918. Private Macklon fought on the front at Loos and Meroc in France and guarded German prisoners of war. Shortly after his return to Britain, Harold wrote a journal of his adventures in the Great War - an honest tale of trenches, battlefields and modest bravery. I hope to get this memoir published so have spent the last couple of years tracing Macklon and Ledwith family history for relevant background family info.

Personally, I have found family history a fascinating subject and am glad to have found so many like minded individuals to share advice and news with!
