George William Rennison

 

Corporal 1093 10th Bn. Lincolnshire Regiment.


From the Lincolnshire Chronicle of 5th August 1916 –
‘The news has been received that Private George William Rennison was wounded on July 2nd in the great British drive in France. He was wounded in the bayonet charge and is now in the Wharncliffe Hospital, Sheffield’. He had suffered a bullet wound through the arm. George has a slightly macabre claim to fame, during WW2 he pulled Douglas Bader from his wrecked aircraft, Douglas’s leg’s remaining in the wreckage!
