Pre War

Stanley Arnold was born in early 1899, son of Thomas and Annie Arnold of Coltsfoot, Datchworth (shown as Patchworth in army records). His father was a labourer and ploughman. In 1911 the family are at Bridgefoot Cottages, and Stanley has two brothers and sisters, and his father is described as a horseman. He lived in Datchworth, and probably joined up with John Bennett as they were the same age, and served in the same regiments until death parted them.

He enlisted at Hitchin and it appears, into the Queens Royal Regt (West Surreys) as 157181, but later was transferred to the Lincolnshires.

Additional Information
