He was a sergeant, see chevrons on sleeve.

James Rebanks is a descendant of a long line of shepherds, in the Lake District, looking after Herdwicks.  His book “the shepherd’s Life”, a tale of the Lake District, was published in paperback by Penguin in 2016 at £9.99.
An excellent read.

Still hopeful that someone may spot this and be able to help.

Column 3 for age says “full” for both.

Morris 8?

Thank you.  That is the man, and I have plenty on his life, but it is the diary I would like to see.

I have found a few extracts from Wadham’s diary online, one covering 1873.  I believe that the Cumbria Record Office at Barrow made a CD of the whole diary, but they are of course closed at present.
This is an appeal to anyone who might have a copy they do not need.  Would you part with it?  Please?
