I assume he was called up again when the First World War broke out, but I can't find any records for him and I don't know if he survived or not. I know he was still alive in 1917 because he was a witness at his brother Herbert's wedding in Leeds. If this sounds like your relative, please get in touch. I would be delighted to hear from you.

Hi, I have a birth certificate for my GGG-grandfather which says that his father, James WALKER was born in Leeds ca. 1841.

Really hope that these details ring a bell with someone somewhere! Best regards

red mail Foster leeds
Recently discovered my great grandfather, Harold Foster (born c1885), who was a master shoemaker and resided in leeds from around 1939 if not much earlier. We believe his father was called David Foster, who was a mason and was deceased by the year 1908 when Harold married his wife Bridget McInerney (also born 1885)in Limerick, Ireland whilst serving as a soldier in the Royal Munster Fusiliers. We think Harold made sergeant. Harold had at least two children, Mary Margaret Foster (b1909) and my grandfather Gerald Patrick Foster, (who served in world war 2 and later moved to tyne and wear with his wife Maud (nee) Robertson.) They may have had more children at a later date. I'm looking for any information anyone might have if this sounds like your Harold and Bridget Foster, or if this sounds like your David Foster. I can't seem to find any death records for Harold or Bridget, or even for David. All I know is that David must have died at some point between 1884 and 1908 when Harold married, as his marriage certificate says he is dead. Bridget's father is given on same cetificate as Samuel McInerney, also deceased. thanks Andy

red mail George Frederick FOSTER
I am hoping to contact descendants of George Frederick Foster, who was born in Leeds in 1848. He emigrated to South Australia with his wife Agnes (nee Allen), son George who would have been about 5 years old and two year old daughter Agnes Elizabeth. They sailed onboard the ship "Woodlark" and arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia on 21 February 1879. George F. and Agnes had another son Oscar born 1880 in Brompton, Adelaide. I believe George Frederick died in 1885, aged about 37. If there are any Aussie descendants of George F. who would like to contact me here in England, I would be happy to swap information.
