Pte. Fred Scott Worksop Guardian 10 September 1915 Britain in keeping her appointment with Russia at the other end of the Dardanelles – an appointment, by the way, which will be filled to the letter – has lost many valuable lives and scarcely a day passes without news of another Worksop hero filling a soldier’s grave. This week it is our unpleasant duty to chronicle the death in action of Pte Fred Scott of the 9th Sherwood Foresters who lodged with Pte William Marsden, who by the way, has just been wounded, and Mrs Marsden his and aunt at 24 Trent Street, Worksop. The news has been received officially, Pte Scott, who before joining the colours worked at the Manton Colliery on the Wigan Coal and Iron Company, enlisted at Worksop in Kitchener’s Army on August 17th last year, and was killed on August 9th. He was drafted to the Dardanelles in July, and had taken part in two actions in Gallipoli. He had only recently attained his majority, and the true sympathy of a wide circle of friends will be extended to his relatives in losing a man so young. Pte Scott was single and died a soldier’s death, upholding the traditions of the British Empire and the British soldier. Pte. F Scott Worksop Guardian 17 September 1915 The late Pte F Scott of Worksop whose death we reported in our last issue, was the son of the late Sarah Anne Scott and grandson of Mrs Ann Marsden, 32 Abbey Street, Worksop.
