    Pte. George Henry Hunt Surrey Yeomanry

    Harry Hunt was my grandfather and served in WW1 as a member of the Surrey Yeomanry. He survived the war but came back a changed man. He would never really talk about the war, or his experiences, and never went abroad again, and indeed never wanted to. He obviously suffered from shell shock, or PTSD as it is known today. Whenever there was a thunderstorm, he would shake and hide in a room, away from family members. He just wanted to live a simple life, after all he had experienced during the war, and did so until he died in his eighties. He was truly a gentle man, in the true meaning of the term.

    Albert Appleby saw service in the Lancers in Northern France up until May 1915 when he was shipped to Salonica, where he served for the remainder of the war spending some of his time as servant to his commanding officer Captain Barclay. He got no medals, no 'mentions in despatches' just good, conscientious service until he was demobbed in May 1919 having finished his time guarding prisoners of war in the Caucasus region. Albert was born in Marchington, Staffordshire December 10th 1882, he married Daisy Warner in November 1918 and died in 1968.
