George was born in about 1899. His collar insignia on the photograph show him as a Pioneer when he was serving with the Leicestershire Regiment. His family remember him suffering from trench foot and being wounded by shrapnel. As a result he was in hospital during the latter part of the war and came home during 1919. He died aged eighty in 1979.
