1897

Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire

5th December 1915

Brown's Road Military Cemetery, Festubert, France

First World War

Private

18th Battalion (1st Public Schools) Royal Fusiliers

Victor with his battalion had only just arrived in France on the 14th November 1915. It was noted in the war diary that the sector that the battalion had taken over from the Gordon Highlanders was in a poor state - extremely wet, poorly drained, parapets old and broken but also noted that most of the shelters were unsafe. Both Victor and his comrade Private Thomas both died in the same accident. His Death Penny is inlaid into this memorial.
