John Harold Clark – Christmas 1915

N.B. This was sent in by his sister, Frances Clark, an Old Girl and was too late for the Roll of Honour.

John Harold Clark, 2nd Lieutenant, 2nd Wilts Regiment, killed in action in France on September 25th, 1915, aged 24 years.

A brother Officer of the 2nd Wilts Regiment writes:

“How we boys Miss him. He was a brave soldier and died leading his men in a masterly way. How he rallied his men will no doubt be told later on, but all to whom I have spoken are loud in their praises of his heroic deeds. He died a great hero, and we are left to `carry on’ and avenge his death.”
