SEE OLDHAM HISTORICAL RESEARCH GROUP [John Leonard volunteered to serve with the newly formed 24th Battalion of the Manchester Regiment, known as the Oldham Comrades, one of the many 'Pals' regiments formed in 1915. At some time, whilst John Leonard was serving with the Manchester Regiment, he transferred to the Military Foot Police Regiment, number P14064. A family member recalls that John Leonard might have been injured or even reported as .missing in action. and this could possibly account for his transfer to the Military Foot Police, if he was considered unfit for front-line duty. When John Leonard was posted overseas, in late 1915, with the Manchester Regiment he, like the other soldiers at the front, wrote his will. His was short and to the point:"In the event of anything happening to me I leave all my property and all my belongings to my wife Esther Binns." Signed Leonard Binns, Pte 24 Ser Batt Manc, 7 Nov 1915]
