Nottingham Evening Post 18/5/1915 'SOUTH NOTTS. HUSSARS. VICTIM OF A MOTOR CYCLE ACCIDENT. The announcement of the death of Farrier Quarter-Master Sergeant George Herbert Booth, of the 2/1st South Notts. Hussars, which has occurred as the result of a motor cycle accident sustained in Norfolk, will be received with deep regret by many Nottingham people. The deceased soldier, who was born in 1880, spent a great part of his life in this city, and for some years resided in Maud-street, New Basford . He joined the South Notts. Hussars in 1897, and formed one of the contingent that took part in the South African War, receiving the Queen's Medal and the King's Medal, while the seven bars attached to them testified to the fact that he bore his full share of the fighting in that campaign. At a special meeting in the South Notts. Hussars' sergeants’ mess yesterday [17th October 1915], the president (Q.M.S. Fisher) made sympathetic reference to the death of comrade who was held in the highest esteem and will be greatly missed. The day's orders by the commanding officer contained an intimation of the sad loss which the unit had sustained, and the passing of one who was so popular has naturally cast a deep gloom over the camp. The funeral to take place with full military honours at Narford' Courtesy of Jim Grundy and his Facebook pages Small Town Great War Hucknall 1914-1918.
