PONTEFRACT IN 1948

1st October 1948 - Old Soldier's Death
In a cardboard box in a neat little house in St Oswald Avenue, Pontefract, is a collection of well polished medals and well-worn ribbons. They belonged to ex-R.Q.M.S. Edmund Withers, the oldest ex-serviceman of the K.O.Y.L.I. who died on Friday at the age of 95
