Marriage register states he is a soldier but no other records found. Name given there is Edward, father is Charles, occupation roadman. Cap badge shows he was in The Sherwood Foresters. There are two men named Edward Harris on the Medal Rolls Index cards and in the UK WWI Service Medal and Award Rolls serving in this regiment. He could possibly be Private 266070, 1st/8th Battalion. The other Edward Harris in the collection was initially in the Bedford Regiment and is therefore less likely to be him. It has not been possible yet to confirm his military service.
