Walter Reginald Booker 1897-1918

A full story about Walter Reginald Booker has been researched and written up by Gay Yates and her husband.  You can download it here.

Gay would love a photo of Walter - she was unable to find one in the local newspapers and none exists in her family.  If you can help please contact us.

Update - September 2015: A photo of Walter has now been found in the South Yorkshire Times in Barnsley Archives.
