William Bowes


William Bowes, regimental number 144935 suffered gun shot wounds to the abdomen and thigh when in France, I think he was transferred to the hospital 2/12/19.
William was my Grandfather and is greatly missed. He was born in Darlington, Durham on 15 Dec 1897 and lived in Darlington, Durham all his life, he died in Bagshot, Surrey in 1971 he was at our house when he died, I was only a child of 9, I have many good memories of him.

Many thanks to Suzanne Bowes.
