First World War Experience
During the War George was attested and working for the Government. Government War Work could have included numerous roles including munitions production. As there was a munitions factory in Bexhill he may have been working there. Similarly some Bexhillians also worked at the Woolwich Arsenal munitions factories. However without further evidence it is impossible to say for certain if this was the case for George.
