First World War
6th Battalion South Lancashire Regiment
Served in the Boer War. His date of death is an interesting movable force - the war diary gives no illuminating information as to his correct date of death - CWGC states that it is 13th July, his family the 16th July. He was also a drummer and musician. NB The date of death understood by Arthur's family and the official date of his death on CWGC are different - I suspect that Arthur's family might have known more than official records but I leave that for others to speculate... but then again France isn't Gallipoli?
