Attached to 264th Siege Bty Ammunition Column VII Corps. Retford Times 13 July 1917 Pte Joseph Goodyear 'It is with deep regret that we record the death of Private Joseph Goodyear, late manager for the Home Yeast Company at 64 Bridge Place, Worksop and for the last 18 months residing at 78 Ollerton Road, Retford. The deceased who was only 38 years of age and well known in Worksop, was, up to the time of joining up, secretary of the Worksop Baker’s Association and although he fell in action on April 8th, notification of his death was only received by his wife at Retford on July 3rd. He was called to the colours in September 1916, his last leave being in February of this year, and on returning to his regiment he was at once drafted out to France. Great sympathy is felt for his wife and three children.'
