He enlisted in Holloway, London; was entitled to the Victory, British War and 1914 Star medals, his qualifying date being 13 August 1914, and was killed in action. Unfortunately, Harry’s Service Record appears to be one that did not survive the World War Two bombing.

Son of Henry William BRADLEY of Islington, London, and the late Emma (nee PORTER) BRADLEY.
His parents married 25 November 1882 at St John’s, Upper Holloway. Henry died 1929 in the Islington district aged 69, and was buried in Islington Cemetery; Emma died 1902 in the Greenwich, London, district aged 44, and was buried in Greenwich Cemetery.
Harry was born 1890 in Holloway, and baptised 8 April 1891 at St Stephen’s, Upper Holloway. He resided in Holloway.
On the 1891 Census, aged 1 he lived in Islington, with his parents and two siblings. On the 1901 Census, aged 11 he lived in Greenwich, with his parents and five siblings. On the 1911 Census, he is proving elusive.
