LITHERLAND FATHER AND
THREE SONS
 
  Many Litherland men are now serving in the Army, Navy and Air Force, both overseas and at home. There has been a splendid response from Litherland to the call of the country in its hour of danger. Probably none have responded more wholly and wholeheartedly than a Litherland father and his three sons, all of whom are in the fighting Forces.
  Gunner W. J. Mullin of 19, Palmerston Drive, Litherland, now serving in the Royal Artillery, has been "in and out of the Army" for the past forty years. He was a Company Sergeant-Major in the last Great war.
   His son Alfred Mullin, Aircraftsman 1st Class, who is now with the British Expeditionary Force in France, has been in the R.A.F. for four years. He was recently decorated by the King for bravery.
   William and Thomas Mullin are also in the Air Force, and both are Aircraftsmen 2nd Class. The former has been serving for two months and the latter for five months.
   As if to accentuate and establish this unique family record, there is a fourth son, James, who will also join the R.A.F., upon reaching the required age.
