HALFORD, Sidney Frank (1918-2005)

Sidney Frank HalfordSidney Frank Halford lived at 6 Pitchers Hill, Wickhamford in 1939 (now 57 Pitchers Hill), with his parents, Charles and Edith.  In 1939 he was working as a dairy roundsman.

No confirmed record has been found concerning the service record of this man. However, there is a record for a "S.F. Halford", a driver in the Royal Corps of Signals - No. 2330227 - who was taken prisoner in N. Africa in 1942.  The studio photograph of him, in front of  an image of a pyramid, places him in Egypt and one of him in front of an army lorry indicates his service role.  It seems as if the Army record is almost certainly that of Sidney Halford.

Photographs were supplied by Val  Harman.
