First World War Experience
The only mention we have of George’s war service is in the local newspaper, Bexhill Observer, dated 18th December 1915, where he was listed under the heading “Bexhill men who have joined the Reserve”.
There are Medal Rolls indexes for George Fellows but nothing that one could use to point to this particular George Fellows.
