Extract from the diary of the Arnold Scholefield, 6th Bn, 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment
[Scholefield (1889-1973), a Stockport native, enlisted on 28 October 1914 and trained in the area before being sent to Northampton for further training later in November]
Had section drill in the armoury in the morning. We are making good progress under the new commanders. In the afternoon went to Gate Green.
This evening I went to see Mr Sewell about marriage licence. He has written to the Bishop of Chester to see if I cannot get a reduction being a newly enlisted soldier.
[On 14 November 1914, Arnold Scholefield married Annie Hopper]
