Enlisted at Bedford and was serving abroad before 1911, entered France on 6 Oct 1914 and died of wounds probably in hospital in Boulogne. 2nd Bedfordshire War Diary Notes: On 7th October 1914, the 2nd Bedfordshire Regiment disembarked the S.S. Winifredian at Zeebrugge. They made their way to the front line, having their first contact with the enemy on October 18th. During November, the British trenches were shelled several times. The Regiment's war diary notes that one man was wounded on the 9th and two were wounded on the 10th, by shell fire near Chateau Rossignol. It seems likely that George died of his wounds received in one of these attacks after being taken a hospital in Boulogne.
