Amazing work! My great uncle Pte J Burton is listed on 1917 8 he was Salford Pals, 12 Platoon, D Company 15th Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers. I think that Pte F Burton on 1916 26 may be a relative as well?
Welcome to the forum. Please find enlarged images of your two men below. If a picture was published in the Eccles Journal RoH it means that there will be an article in the paper of that year. I can take a look at the Eccles Journal microfilms next time I am at the Salford History Library if you would like me to do so?
