PONTEFRACT IN 1946

11th JANUARY 1946
PRESUMED DEAD

Mrs A.Linley, of 14, Olivers Mount, Pontefract, has received official notification from the War Office that her husband, Private Arthur Linley, of the York and Lancaster Regiment, who was reported missing on 20th August 1944, must be presumed to have lost his life on that date.

Private Linley, who was 27, joined the Army at the outbreak of war, and was stationed for a time at Pontefract Barracks. He went to Iceland, and after nearly three years there returned to England. A week after D-Day had started he went to France with his company; and out of his company, was the sole casualty.

Before he joined the Army, Private Linley had worked at the C.W.S. Fellmongering Dept Pontefract from the time he left school.
