Biographical information

    • Leonard Harding was the son of James and Kate Harding. AWMM
    • 'Private C. Harding, Formerly of Addington Shops. Died of Wounds.'
      Private C. Harding, whose death from wounds was announced early in May was employed at the Addington Workshops prior to enlisting, and he was well known and popular amongst sportsmen. Not very long ago Mr Harding wrestled with Mr L. Emery for the Bantam Catch-as-catch-can Championship of Canterbury, in which Mr Emery won. Mr Harding was a light man, but with particularly fine muscular development and scored good marks in the physical development competition held in connection with Mr F. Hornibrook's Physical Culture Institute. He was a member of the Sydenham League Junior Football team last season.
