George Henry Stephen

Lovelock

20th January 1895

Broad Hinton, Wiltshire

1st June 1916

Died of wounds received in action either the 31st May or the 1st June 1916 at one of the General Hospitals near Etaples. George had been severely wounded in one of two incidents which happened on the 25th May, a rifle grenade which hit the centre company or more likely an incident which hit the ration party picking up rations from the railway dump when a mule hit a trench torpedo close to the track which exploded - many were killed and wounded from this battalion and the 3rd Worcesters who were also collecting.
