[BIOGRAPHY]
John GERAGHTY was born in Manchester and later lived at 12 Benson Street, Higher Broughton. He enlisted in Manchester. He arrived in France on 10th November 1915. At midnight on 30th June 1916 he and his unit moved forward from Bois des Tailles ready for the attack on MAMETZ where A, B, C, & D companies each fought at various times during the day in a controlled deployment. In the early afternoon, D company 21st reinforced the 22nd Manchesters and by 1:30 pm they had gained control of Danzig Alley. It was there that John fought and died on the afternoon of the 1st July at Queen's Nullah.
