Personal History    
The son of William and Lydia, of Stopford Road, St Helier.

One of the original Jersey Company officers, commanding No 2 Platoon. In September 1915, he attended a machine gun course while training at Aldershot. After going to the front in December 1915, he was slightly wounded in April the following year, and then more seriously in July. Evacuated for treatment in the UK, he did not return to active service until August 1917. In September that year, he was appointed commander of the Jersey Company and promoted to Captain. In January 1918 he led most of the surviving members to 2nd Hampshire Regiment and commanded a company of that Battalion until April when he was wounded for a third time during the fighting near Bailleul. For his bravery during the action he was awarded a Military Cross. He did not return to active service.

In the years that followed the war he continued to suffer due to his wounds, dying prematurely as a result in 1939.
