Harry Craddock - 13th (service) Battalion Durham Light Infantry
Introduction to Harry
Harry Craddock is my great-grandfather and was a figure that my family knew little about. As a boy I was immensely curious about this unknown relative who had won all these medals in World War 1. He had volunteered in 1914 and had fought in the trenches for over three years, including the Somme and Ypres.
He would have been subject to gas warfare, bayonet charges, bombing raids, intense barrages of shells, machine gun fire and witness to the first uses of the tank.
