James Williamson


Submitted by Pat Sweetlove.

My grandfather James Williamson served during the first world war. B.1880 into a very poor family he became a schoolmaster in the early 1900's and later headmaster at Palermo Street(?) Special School. My father b. 1911 d. 2005 told me that he remembers his father coming down the garden path in khaki in 1917, as his wife Lilian (nee Johnson) had died of TB. Ob he was older and I presume as a teacher, didn't have to go. He died in 1933.
