Fred Watts was from Calow and enlisted in June 1915 and arrived in France in 1916.
Both men were most likely wounded on the working party that claimed the lives of their comrades the previous day
Harold and Fred are buried side by side – we have photos of them on our http://www.brimington-memorial.co.uk when we visited them a couple of years ago. Very touching
