James

Webley

Coddington, Herefordshire

25th October 1914

Killed in action in an advance on the British line near Bois Grenier outside of Armentieres near a place called Le Quesne. The Battalion was involved in holding the line before a planned withdrawal - they were hit by heavy artillery, pincer attacks and sniper fire. It seems that James was killed prior to this withdrawal
