Corporal Harbord passed through Peterborough East Station and signed the visitors’ book on 24 October 1916.  His book entry reveals he was serving with the Royal Engineers but little else is known about him. It is not even certain that his initial reads ‘S’, it could be ‘J’ or even ‘T’.  He was appreciative of the rest room in helping a long wait of several hours to pass pleasantly.

There were a couple of tentative links including that of a Joseph Harbord, a fisherman from Lowestoft before the war, might this be our man?  Can you help with any information or suggestions?
