Thank you. Probably back to the iron works for him then, if they would take him back.

There's a certificate from the company stating that his job was reserved for him when he was demobbed.

Pleased to hear it - at least something went right for him then!
Thank you.  :)

He survived everything that the Germans, Turks & mosquitoes did to him so was probably happy with that.

So I'm guessing he had malaria then. Was he at Gallipoli?
Thanks.

Salonica & then involved in fighting in Turkey until 1918 when he was one of a number to return to France where he was posted to the Labour Corps. This followed a bout of malaria which rendered him B1 fit so no longer fit for front line service where a man had to be A1.
I don't suppose he was complaining.
He was posted to 278 & then 279 Area Employment Company.

Thanks very much indeed, Jim. Am I right in thinking that Harry had previous service in the Army, before WW1, please?

Thank you again - and I'm glad to say that Harry lived until he was 65, so I think he did pretty well, all things considered.
