The Harding Brothers

The Harding brothers (Thomas, George and William) all wanted to enlist for service, but the youngest (thought to be William) was underage, so they got their father William Snr. drunk enough so that he would sign the permission papers. The three brothers all returned from service and went on to live full and productive lives.
