Appeal for Flint family details

Have your say

A MAN is appealing for information about a Sheffield-born soldier who died in the First World War.

Tony Flint, aged 65, discovered while working on his family tree that Private Albert Flint - who died in France aged 19, on September 20 1918 - was a relative.

The Londoner is now appealing to Sheffield folk for information about the soldier and his family.

According to records he lived on Greystock Street and was in the 10th Battalion West Yorkshire Regiment.

Tony, of Tottenham, said: “I’m working on my family history and am an ex-military man of 31 years.

“With the centenary of the First World War in 2014 it would prove quite interesting to show how one family went to war and a lot suffered.”
