Recommended Posts


John Spencer Hodds AKA Spencer John Hodds, 1880-1916, resident of Martham, Norfolk.

Served as private 18711 2nd battalion, Norfolk Regiment, 6th Indian Division.

Killed in action 22nd April 1916 at Kut, Mesopotamia.

There is an excellent account of this siege in Petre's "The History of the Norfolk Regiment".

Can any member help me find his original attestation details? Any guidance gratefully received.
