Another brother Harry Ward was signaller in the Royal Field Artillery and was awarded a Certificate of Merit.Unlike his two brothers Harry survived the war. Harry's address was 12,Wood Street Hapton the same as Frank's. William had been married during the war and I am not sure what his wife's address was.
