Pte. Alfred T Warboys Worksop Guardian 30 March 1917 Following the news that Pte. Alfred T Warboys was wounded on the 4th inst .. , his parents on Tuesday of notification that he had been killed in action on that date, but no particulars have been received. Pte. Warboys was the third son of Mr Warboys of Turner Wood. He enlisted in the Sherwood Foresters on January 12th 1915 but was transferred to the Northamptons, on crossing to France in the same year. He was transferred to the Machine Gun Section. He was home on leave this year, and had only been back six weeks when he was killed. The news of his death came as a great shock to his parents and relatives, with whom the deepest sympathy is felt. We hope to re-produce his photograph in the next issue. Before enlisting he worked as a trammer at Shireoaks Colliery. His younger brother, Pte Ernest Warboys, R.E., has been in France two years.
