First World War Experience

George enlisted in the Reserves on 19th August 1907 and was discharged, after being wounded, on 23th July 1918. As his Service Records have not survived we do not know exactly what part George played in the war but we do have a letter to the newspaper that his wife wrote on 1th January 1916:

“Dear Sir, – I am writing on behalf of my little daughter to thank you for thinking of her again this Christmas and sending her such a nice present, which she was very pleased with.  I’m sure her daddy will be delighted when he hears of it.  He is still at the Front, and I am glad to say quite safe up till now.

Wish you a happy New Year.

I remain,

Yours truly

            May Bransden.”

George was awarded the Victory Medal and the British War Medal.
