France 13th April 1915,e enlisted aged 17, killed in Action on Monday 28th August 1916,age19. Remembered with Honour Londales Cemetery Arthuile Somme. A letter from an NCO to the grief-stricken parents states that their son was killed on the 27th August. It may be of little consolation to you to know that his death was instantaneous. He was one of the very few of us now left with the company that left England seventeen months ago. He was always willing and always smiling and no one could have a better lad to deal with. Entitled to a 1914-15 star.
