Personal History    

The son of Wesley and Jane, of 4 Clifton Place, Ann Street, St Helier. Prior to the war he worked for Messrs Coopers and Co, Tea Merchants.

After training in Ireland and Aldershot he went to the front with the Jersey Company in December 1915. Served through 1916 until September when he was wounded in the fighting at Guillemont and Ginchy. Subsequently evacuated for treatment at the No 5 General Hospital in Rouen, France, he presumably returned to the front and served with the Jerset Company into 1917. At some point, possibly around June that year, he was wounded for a second time. In January 1918, when most other remaining Jersey Company members transferred to the Hampshire Regiment, he appears to have remained with the Royal Irish Rifles. He won a Military Medal in October, and was also wounded for a third time when hit in the hand by a bullet. Evacuated to a hospital in England for treatment, he presumably did not return to active service. Subsequently, he served with the Army Ordnance Corps, although this was most likely post-war.
