Pre War

Charles was the son of George & Louisa Ward of 10 Nottingham Road, Stevenage. Before joining the Army, he had worked at the Educational Supplies Association factory in Fishers Green, Stevenage.

Wartime Service

He had served in France since January 1916 where he saw action in many of the major engagements on the Somme. However, he was admitted to hospital suffering from appendicitis and, although he appeared to be recovering from the operation, suffered a fatal relapse. Charles is buried in the Longuenesse (St. Omer) Souvenir Cemetery, France.
