Barlick Born Old Salt

Khaki in colour and sombre in content. "Cravens Part in the Great War", there will not have been many households in Barlick and what was then a much larger Craven Area, that did not have at least one copy of this book. In my immediate Family there would have been at least four and I still have two of them, albeit that one is with my son on Anglesey. Over the years I have seen them at jumble sales, in second hand shops and in piles of rubbish for disposal, even left behind when a house has been vacated. They will have turned up all over the place, I have come across them in Wales, the Isle of Wight and Hampshire, the two that I have belonged to my Father and Maternal Grandfather.
Many years ago I went through one of them from cover to cover noting those from Barlick who had given their lives in the service of King and Country, my notes are long gone so I am going to do it again, a few pages at a time, but this time I will include other local places within an approximate seven mile radius, Gisburn, Foulridge, Earby and so on. I will post my findings on here with the name, address and a precis of other details, as some are quite extensive, each name is to have the page number for my reference so that if anyone wants further information, I can soon find it. In a good number of cases there is a photograph, these I will copy and post in groups of ten at suitable intervals. In the book there are 391 pages so I will use a few abreviations hopefully all self explanatory, ie, KIA:- Killed in Action. MPD:- Missing presumed Dead. DOW:- Died as a result of Wounds, and one that is all too frequent, DFD:- Died from Disease or Illness.
One Man was responsible for the existance of these books and that was Mr, Walter Morrison Esq, JP of Malham Tarn who put forward the idea of the book and defrayed the entire cost.
There is quite a bit about the war itself up to page 50, including the Rohilla Tradgedy, then comes the dreadful list of those who did not come home, and so it is that on page 57 we find the first of Barlicks Sons, and is as follows:-

2nd Lieut Harry Thornton Pickles, 3rd Bn Duke of Wellington's (West Riding) Regiment (SR) second son of Mr Stephen Pickles JP, CC, Of Raysgill Barnoldswick KIA 26th April 1916 aged 26. P57.

In these first ten pages the extent of family loss is made very clear for it was in the Village of Carleton nr Skipton that this comes up:-

P53,  Lieut. Anthony E.K. Slingsby, 1/6th Duke of Wellington's (WR) Regiment, Son of Mr and Mrs J A Slingsby Carla Beck Carleton. KIA France 14th July 1915. Aged 26.
P57,  Captain Arthur Morris Slingsby, MC 56th Punjabi Rifles,  2nd son of Mr and Mrs J A Slingsby KIA 8th March 1916 in Mesopotamia. Aged 30.
P58.  Lieut. Stephen Slingsby of HMS Defence, 4th son of Mr and Mrs J A Slingsby. KIA in North Sea June 1916. Aged 24.
This out of a total of five sons all serving.
 
Lothersdale is the next local Village with on P62.  Lieut Alec Wilson, 1st Herefordshire Regiment, Son of Mr and Mrs F J Wilson JP of Lothersdale. KIA 26th March 1917 in Egypt.
P54, Lieut. The Hon, C. A. Lister Royal Marines, Hood Battalion, Only surviving son and heir of Lord Ribblesdale of Gisburne Park DOW 28th August 1915. Elder Brother killed in 1904 in Somaliland.
Greystones, Gisburn.  Lieut. George Proctor, Lancs Fusiliers, only son of Mr and Mrs Thomas Proctor. KIA 7th April 1918 aged 24. P70.
Marton is on P73, Which Marton is not clear,  2nd Lieut, Joseph Bryan Bushby South Staffs Regiment, son of Mr and Mrs Joseph Bushby, Schoolhouse Farm Marton, DOW, 4th October 1918 aged 26.

Thank you Chris, I was not aware, and I have a positive already, Born Barlick, resident of Barlick and according to Ians list, and newspaper articles, buried at Ghyll, I will have to look at the Coroners Report as this Young Man got out of hospital at Skipton and was found in the canal. Would a suicide be precluded from the memorial?

Pte, Arthur Green. I have  my first five names, four born in Barlick and one at Salterforth, all five were residents in Barlick at time of death. I am going to open a new topic for this part and hopefully get some response from possible descendants. New topic will be Barlicks part in WW1.

Good idea Peter. I wonder as well what the criteria is for which monument a person is included on such as born / resided in Barlick or Salterforth for instance? Salterforth has its own monument of course.

I have seen the site Chris put up before, I will have a good look round it to see if there is any info.

 Thanks Chris. We have the basis of a small committee, unofficial, but interested enough, as for a Councillor, one of the names that I have just posted in the new topic might just grab his attention if I put it in the local paper, and the local stonemason is a friend of mine. Onwards and upwards.

West Yorkshire Pioneer Illustrated War Record Entry:

METCALFE, Irving, aged 43 years, H.L.I., 20, Beech Street, [Barnoldswick], killed in action, France, Aug. 31, 1918.

Article Date: 04 October 1918
Barnoldswick Man Wounded and Missing
Mrs. Metcalfe, 13, Wellington Street, Barnoldswick, has received a letter from an officer stating that her husband, Pte. Irving Metcalfe, Highland Light Infantry, was "wounded and missing" on Aug. 31st. "Only a few returned from the party he was with, and one of these stated that Pte. Metcalfe was wounded, but could give no further details. As the party was practically surrounded, some of them were taken prisoners, and there is every possibility your husband was among the number." - Capt. Hamilton. Pte. Cafferty, of the same regiment, in a letter enclosing a photograph he had found belonging to Pte. Metcalfe, writes:- "The poor fellow fell by my side, but I have hopes he has been picked up as a prisoner. I could do nothing for him at the time, as we were under severe machine gun fire and grenades. The envelope enclosed was the means of my finding out your address. I may say there is every possibility of his being yet alive. He was a good and faithful comrade, and we miss him very much." Pte. Metcalfe was well-known in Barnoldswick, being the son of the late Mr. James Metcalfe, Wellington Street

Article Date: 20 December 1918
Fate of a Missing Barnoldswick Soldier
Enquiries as to the fate of Pte. Irving Metcalfe, reported missing at the beginning of September, have elicited the following letter from Pte. P.J. Cafferky (Lewis Gun Section), of the same regiment:- "I regret to tell you that your brother, Pte. Metcalfe, was killed by machine-gun fire at Ypres on the 31st August 1918. We were in a tight corner, and only a few of us escaped. The enemy at that point was at the rate of five men to our one, and as we were only a scouting patrol, we got trapped. I saw Pte. Metfcalfe swing round and fall, and I know he must have got a few ballets in his left side. I am sorry to have to give yon this sad news as he was a very nice chap and a loyal comrade." Pte. Metcalfe was 43 years of age, and leaves a widow and two sons living at 20, Beech Street, Barnoldswick. He only went to France in June last.

Irving Metcalfe dd 31 Aug 1918 was born 1875 Barnoldswick son of James & Elizabeth Ann (Edmondson) Metcalfe
