Pte. Idris Green Worksop Guardian 25 January 1918 Mr. Thomas Green, 6, Potter Street, Worksop, has received official information that his son, Pte. Idris Green, Warwickshire Regiment who has been missing since November 18th, 1916, is now reported dead. Nothing further has been heard of him, and it is concluded that he must have been killed on or about that date. Pte. Green was only 17 when he enlisted in the 28th Sherwood Foresters, and took part in the Dublin Rebellion, being transferred later to the Warwick’s, with which regiment he saw much fighting. Prior to enlisting he worked at Manton Colliery. The deceased was a smart and steady lad and liked by all who knew him. He was held in great affection by his comrades and the NCOs’ and men of the Sherwood Foresters, who speak in high terms of him as a soldier. Mr. Green and his family will have the sympathy of many friends in their sorrow. Pte. Idris Green, had he lived, would have completed his 21st year next Sunday
