Peter Barton is looking for Harry Wharton

Last seen: Macclesfield 1940 approx

I'm trying to find out more about Harry Wharton who had a relationship with my now deceased grandmother during the war. He was a dispatch rider in the Royal Lancashire Artilllary stationed in Macclesfield Cheshire. It is believed that he was killed in action ( possibly France) and details were in the Manchester evening paper. He would spend Saturday nights in The Park Tavern in Macclesfield. Some of the details my mother has are a bit vague as she was only six years old at the time but she believes he came from Oldham or Rochdale.
