Clifford Haslam was my Uncle . Sadly he died long before I was born but I have always been extremely proud of his Service to our Country and at such a young age paying the ultimate price thereby allowing people like me to live a relatively peaceful life : I was born after the Second World War

I really appreciate Nat West Bank allowing relatives and friends of the former employees of the Bank to express their thoughts regarding the sacrifices made by people who worked in the Bank.

I am one of 3 sisters who are the closest relatives of our Uncle Clifford & hold the family file containing his Service record. We have his WW1 penny, letters he wrote from the trenches to his Mother, our Grandmother & a letter written by his Commanding Officer after his death. He was a very brave & special soldier, winning the Military Medal for saving a comrade & putting a machine gun out of action. We are so proud of him.

In his file there is an invitation to our Grandmother from the Manchester & County Bank Ltd, to attend a memorial to the fallen members , along with the Order of Service.  This was on Saturday 20th September 1919. These treasures will continue to be kept within the family .

We attended The Remembrance Service in Westhoughton in 2021 where his name is inscribed on the Cenotaph.
