Claro Times - 27th March 1915

We reproduce in our picture series this week a photograph of Sergeant M Henry, Cheapside, Knaresborough, who is with the 5th West Yorkshire Regiment on the East Coast. He has been promoted to the rank of Sergeant since the outbreak of the war. Like his brother, Corporal J Henry, of the same regiment, whose photograph we published last week, he joined the Volunteers as a young man, and after some years' service, went on the reserve. On the formation of the Territorial system he joined the 5th West Yorkshire Regiment.

The two brothers have been members of the Knaresborough Silver Band, which is temporary disbanded owing to its members serving with the Colours, for many years, and were also active members of the Knaresborough Association Football Club.
