1st Bn Cameron Highlanders
Leverton enlisted 7/1/1904 with the Manchester Regiment giving his age as 18 years 4 months. He was discharged 31/10/1904 'having made a mis-statement as to age on enlistment.' He was in fact 14 years six months old when discharged. He was described as of 'good character'. Leverton was probably an interesting 14 year old; he had 'Fred' tattooed on his left forearm and 'Kate' tattooed on the nape of his neck. How and when he joined the Cameron Highlanders during the Great War is unknown. He is buried in Perth Cemetery (China Wall) grave ref. XII. B. 22.
Nottingham Post notice (abridged), 18 December 1914: 'Lance Corporal (sic) Leverton, 1st Cameron Highlanders, of Nottingham, saw fighting in India and was killed in France between October 22nd and 24th.'
