It was with profound grief that the news of Sg Harry Bairstow’s death from wounds was received by the people of the district last week. Sgt Bairstow joined the Seaforth Highlanders in November 1915 as a private. In four months’ time he had earned his sergeant’s stripes and was engaged for eight months in teaching musketry. Going to France in December of last year, he was at the base for a few months. After volunteering, he was sent up the line and died from wounds early this month in a casualty clearing station in France. He was well known as a forward in the Bradford Northern Football Club and had a large number of acquaintances. He leaves a widow and two young children with whom the deepest sympathy will be felt. His widow is a granddaughter of the late Mr Joseph Taylor of Hill House, Baildon, who was so well known and highly respected in business and social circles of Bradford and Baildon. By profession the late Sgt Bairstow was an auctioneer. Shipley Times & Express 27 April 1917
