Lovelock

5th November 1897

Broad Hinton, Wiltshire

Killed in action after being listed as initially missing. Part of the 2nd Wiltshires were put into a composite battalion with the 2nd Bedfordshires to fill a hole in the line near Vierstraat in Belgium. They were hit hard with gas shells, flamethrowers, artillery shells and an infantry attack. The following day the group returned to the 2nd Wiltshire with 7 ranks killed, 18 wounded and 37 missing. Victor's body was never found but some of his comrades were found in the next eighteen months on the battlefield after the end of the war in the Vierstraat area identifiable through their ID discs.
