Private

2nd/5th Battalion North Staffordshire Regiment

Royal Army Service Corps

Notation in service record which states in barely legibale writing that a Pte from the 25th Northumberland Fusiliers notified the War Office of Alfred Hill's death - this Private in the NF was a PoW. On March 21st 1918, the battalion lost 22 officers and 539 other ranks - Alfred was one of them. It remains interesting that his father had it written on his memorial that he died of wounds.
