Private
9th Bn Sherwood Foresters (Notts & Derby Regiment)
He enlisted in the Sherwood Foresters (Notts and Derby Regiment) in February 1915 and after recruit training was posted to the 9th Battalion on Gallipoli. On 26 September 1916 the battalion took part in The Battle of Thiepval and successfully took all of its objectives, bringing praise from all quarters on the tenacious manner in which they had taken and held, with a large number of prisoners taken in the process. This success came at a high cost with 91 men killed on the day and others dying of their wounds later. Between the 26th and 30th September the 9th battalion had 363 casualties, which was almost 50% of the attacking force.
