Ww1 - a Memory of Rugeley.

My great grandparents lived in Yardlrys Entry, Horsefair, Rugeley. I know this as it is on my grandfather's birth certificate - Alfred Johnson. In 1919 he was a Corporal in the i/6 north staffs regiment 240380. He had been in France but must have had some leave spring 1918 as Arthur was born Jan 1919! He had been a coal miner. Once home they had a few more - making 13! I think he was very lucky to have come through it all and I would like to find out more about his time in the regiment. jo johnson
