Attested Sept 1914 aged 19 years and 2 months. In France from 28/2/1915. Initially reported missing, but in December 1915 he was declared to have been killed on 13/10/1915.
May have lied about his age has he was born in Mansfield in 1898 so only 17 when he enlisted not 19 so age at death is correct. This man is commemorated in a book of remembrance held by Mansfield District Council. In 1901 the family lived on Lord Street, Mansfield.
