He was a regular soldier and the step brother of 15723 Private William Henry Askew, who was also killed in action. Walter’s father remarried after the death of his first wife Catherine, to a Mrs W. Askew, the mother of Pte W.H. Askew above mentioned Walter was serving with “C” Battery Royal Field Artillery as a part of the 152nd Brigade. He enlisted in Nottingham but we do not know exactly how Walter died but during October 1917 the 3rd battle of Passchendaele was raging and the British artillery would have been much in demand. On the other hand the Germans would have done everything they could to silence our artillery and it is believed that Walter died as the result of enemy fire directed at his gun battery.
