[BIOGRAPHY]
Patrick Maddon (Madden) was born in 1866 in Flint, Flintshire, Wales, and prior to his enlistment on 16th December 1891 at age 25 he had been a labourer.
During his service he took part in the occupation of Crete in 1898 and served in the Sudan and in the South African War.

Patrick Maddon was wounded in the famous Lancashire Fusiliers action at SPION COP on 24th January 1900.

He served for 17 years until his first discharge on 8th June 1908.

[WW1 HOME SERVICE]
At the outbreak of the Great War he re-enlisted into the Lancashire Fusiliers, but clearly due to his age (48) was transferred to the R.D.C. (Royal Defence Corps) as No.25703 and did not go to France. He then again re-enlisted into the Royal Engineers as No. 612881 on 1st July 1919 and had nine months post-war service in France from 22nd July 1919 to 30th April 1920. The post war Royal Engineers were working in France on various projects including the reclamation of salvageable arms and equipment. Patrick was finally discharge on 8th May 1920 at the age of 54.

His address on discharge was 12 Campbell St, St Helens, Lancashire.
