Native Cheltonian Henry Wheeler (Pte, 20712). Killed in action in the Loos/Hulloch area 4th October 1915.

Regretably, I have no photo of Lt Pearce, but have snaps of Hamblin, Hunt and Wheeler.

Not strictly as you require, but I hope this is of help to you.

GSW Rt Leg Apr 1918

Returned to England 17/4/1918

Discharged 16/4/1919

He developed gangrene and was subjected to 3 amputations finally losing the leg from just below the knee.

His brother George Dolphin (24281) joined the 3rd Battalion GG at Woolwich on 25/10/15

George was wounded on 15/9/1916 subsequently dying of those wounds at No5 CCS at Corbie on 20th Sept 1916 aged 23 years
