He and his twin brother, Frank, enlisted in the Nott’s and Derby’s shortly after the out break of war. Before the war his brother, William, had joined the Coldstreams, and a fourth brother, Charles, joined the 6th Lincoln’s, and has been wounded three times, and is now in hospital. The dead lad was drafted to France on March 18th, 1915, and after ten months experience in the trenches he had a short leave home. He returned to take part in the fighting subsequent to the Great Push, and was killed in action on September 11th. He was a brave lad, and a good soldier, and had many friends in Clumber Park and neighbourhood, who will deplore his death. Previous to enlistment he worked on the Clumber Estate.
