  1. See link Sheffield City Battalion men killed on the 1st day of the Battle of the Somme City Battalion Men
  2. Do you still have that information about the Sharrow cycling Club? I am currently writing a club history. I hope you do not mind that I have used the menu cards you posted here in Sheffield history. In the 1910 menu Earl Fitzwilliam was a guest and finding this photo we discover that July 2nd 1910 the club had a special club run to Wentworth at the invitation of Earl Fitzwilliam. 

    If you still have the information on the club we would very much like to have a look at it for our records. If you are interested I could bring along our photo albums that date back the era of track racing at Bramhall Lane.

  12. On a Positive note I use Windows 10 with no issues. I have used it all year under the Beta testing programme, it was a clean install. All my software seems to be compatible (Office 2010, Adobe CS 6 etc) I have upgrade my laptop using the Windows 7 >> Windows 10 route, that on the whole seems ok.

  14. Just had a quick look, I think most of the Sheffield ones we will have seen before as B&W postcards. I have an Ancestry subscription, so no problems if you need a search for an actual location.
