Thomas Norman Hiley
The many friends of Sgt T N Hiley, of the 7th battalion, East Yorkshire Regt, will be delighted to hear of his promotion. Sgt Hiley is the son of Mr Joseph Hiley of 2 Howard Street, Shipley. He enlisted on September 8th 1914, proceeding to France on July 12th 1915. Previously he was employed at Mr
H J Mason’s, Victoria Works, Shipley. As a boy he attended Rosse Street Baptist Church and Sunday School and later became a member of the St Lawrence Church, Bolton Woods. He was a popular player with the St Lawrence football team and at the time he enlisted, quite a number of the boys associated with the club followed his lead.
In a recent letter home he referred to the fact that all leave had been stopped owing to the heavy fighting in which his particular division had been engaged. But for that, he might have been home last week. He is unmarried and in his 25th year. Shipley Times & Express 25 February 1916
