Leonard went to war...

Before he founded Windowcharm Blinds & Curtains, Leonard went to war. Sergeant Leonard Ronald Warrilow 7536446.


Born in Sheffield during the last year of WW1, Leonard enlisted in September 1939, just days before his 21st birthday. He applied for registration in the medics and was later drafted into the army dental corps. Following many weeks of intense training, Leonard was enrolled into active service abroad; destination unknown, his only clue being the tropical kit he was issued with...


Leonard returned from war and later went on to build Windowcharm; many of his age didn’t return.


Today, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month we remember those that lost their lives in the great wars.
