The location of this photo was the far side of Leeds
Bradford Airport, Dean Head, Yeadon Moorside, it is thought that the cottages
have gone now.
The donor of the image told us that his grandfather Charles Henry Parker is 5th
from the right wearing a black flat cap.
He would have been aged 9 or 10
at this time having been born in 1899.
On the right is the donor's great grandfather
who appears to be holding the hand of Albie, Charles Henry's brother.
Charles Henry joined the Army
in 1914 when he was underage, he survived WW1 despite being shot 5 time, gassed
and having shrapnel wounds.
He later lived at Warren House Farm as a labourer
which is where the donor's father was born, the family lived at Warren House
Farm until they moved to the Haw estate during WW2.
A Spitfire crashed near the
farm which was close to the airfield during the war, Charles Henry managed
to pull the pilot from the burning aircraft but sadly he died.
Charles Henry went on to work
for Aireborough Urban District Council, mostly at the recycling plant at New
Scarborough, he was easily recognised by his distinctive limp.
