Details of any conflict, training exercise and operations which the deceased had participated in during service.

WW1 Western Front. Ypres. John died in what was known as the 2nd Battle of Ypres which started in April 1915

John is likely to be entited to the 1914 War Medal and The Victory Star. However many records were destroyed in WW2 and no award confirmation can be found.

 

Other general information. online links images etc.

There has been some conjecture as to how old John was when he died, Conflicting information on the Commonwealth War Graves website gives both 28 and 38.  However a record can only be found for his birth in 1886 and no one else of that name can be found born in Sunderland around that period or 10 years earlier. According to the 1911 Census (below) he is 24 so his death would have been around the age of 28.

If he was 38 that would have made his mother 11 years old when he was born which is unlikely.

In the 1911 census John is recorded as a machinist living with his parents and siblings
