Son of Harry and Mary Henderson, of Newton Heath, Manchester.

Born on 27-1-1923. Died of wounds in the fieldhospital at the village of Meerveldhoven. He was initially buried there.

My father David Harry is the nephew of Harry Henderson buried at Valkenswaard War Cemetery. Harry’s parents, Mary & Harry Henderson are my Great Grandparents. They had 9 children and Harry was their 5th child. He was a funny and loving young man, who cared deeply for his family and would send home money from his war pay. He was one of 3 brothers who fought in WW2, the other two, Alfred and Tom survived the war and lived to an old age.

My father visited Valkenswaard with his parents and grandparents several times. The Van Lieshout family cared for Harry’s grave at the Valkenswaard cemetery and became good friends with my family.
