Lance Corporal
9th Bn Sherwood Foresters (Notts & Derby Regiment)
Ralph Hutson served with 17th battalion prior to the 9th. The battalion was conducting operations in the vicinity of St Julien when Ralph was killed. They were also tasked with getting supplies to the front line which in the mud was far from easy. During this time the enemy artillery was always heavy and accurate. It is likely that Ralph along with three other men killed that day was hit by the shelling as none have a known grave. He received the British War Medal and Victory Medal which means he enlisted sometime after 1 January 1916. John Morse
