Private J Ellis passed through Peterborough East Station and signed the visitors’ book on 5 July 1916. He wrote:

“I write here not for beauty

I write here not for fame

I write to be remembered

So I’ll just sign my name”

He was possibly part of a group of four Royal Garrison Artillery soldiers, which included Private John Lancaster, Private John W Harland and Private Francis Miller Harding, who were stationed at Sheffield.

We have been unable to trace any military information about Private J Ellis.  Is he your relative?  Can you help?
