Peter Welsh was a history teacher at Pennywell Comprehensive School in Sunderland. His interest in the subject was sparked when a pupil brought in material relating to the setting up of the South Hylton war memorial, this led to school trips to the battlefields of the Somme. Around 12 years ago, Peter and his teacher wife Margaret began investigating the names on the nearby Harraton war memorial.
