Pre War

Arthur was born in Little Berkhamsted in 1886 and in 1911 was a gardener living with his parents Thomas (a general labourer) and Mary in Epping Green.

Wartime Service

Arthur enlisted in the Bedfordshire Regiment (service number 26847 suggests he enlisted in early 1916), and later transferred to the 6th battalion of the Northamptonshire Regiment (who fought alongside the 7th Bedfords in the 54th Brigade). He died of wounds, age 32, on 10th August 1917 – probably as a result of the actions around Glencourse Wood (Third Ypres).
