ß Щ Allan/ Allen Langdon is Allan Leonard Langdon. We found an A Langdon 2nd Lt Lancs Fusiliers but also had been given a service number, which suggests he was an ‘other rank’ possibly promoted to officer at the end of the war because of the shortage of officers?  b 1894 Longnor, Staffs. 1911C Longnor a postman. (There is a reference to Allen Langdon, in Sheffield Independent 18/7/1923; A Hathersage Insurance Agent involved in a motor accident). He had a younger brother Eric Bernard who served, originally with the Kings Royal Rifles, he later transferred into The Lancashire Fusiliers was wounded and captured at Passchendaele. It is not thought he had any other ‘Hathersage Connections’ than his brother.
