Pte Joseph Halliday of the West Yorks Regt and only son of Mr and Mrs W Halliday of 19 Constance Street, Saltaire, has been killed in action by the bursting of a trench mortar shell. He enlisted in November 1914 and had been in France 14 months. He was 18 years of age and prior to the war was employed by Messrs John Robson and Son, Shipley. In a letter to his parents, the Rev R Whincup says: “I am so very sorry for you in your great affliction. But your boy has died a very
honourable and gallant death and this is a very great thing to have done. “The death of all these fine boys in the Bradford Territorials is such a trouble to me.” Second-Lieut E D Stansfield writes: “It has been a great shock to all of us in D Company as he was extremely popular amongst all ranks, being recognised as a jolly good fellow and a soldier who could invariably be relied on to do his duty whatever job he was given to him.” Shipley Times & Exprss 24-11-1916
