Lance Corporal
10th Bn Lancashire Fusiliers
He enlisted 2/9/1914 aged 32 years 30 days and was assigned to 'D' Coy 12th Bn Sherwood Foresters. On 26/2/1915, he was discharged as medically unfit. However, by July 2015 he had re-enlisted into the Lancashire Fusiliers. He died of wounds.
Bullock's great granddaughter Deborah Clay notes 'The tragedy is that on 25th March 1916 my great grandmother Ann gave birth to their fifth daughter, Maggie and we've always wondered if she could have received a telegram telling her Samuel had been injured. Could this have caused her to go into labour? Regardless he would never know her and they already had four other girls aged 4, 6 8 & 9.' Cite Bonjean Military Cemetery Armentieres, Grave Reference: IX G 87 Thanks to Deborah Clay for this identification.
