MANSFIELD Harold William aka Harry
Private 43622, 2nd Battalion, Suffolk Regiment. Died 25 July 1917 in France & Flanders. Born Cambridge, enlisted Bury St Edmunds. Formerly 2421, Suffolk Yeomanry. Buried in COLOGNE SOUTHERN CEMETERY, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany. Plot X. Row B. Grave 7.

Harold was born in Cambridge on 16th September 1897 and was later baptised at St. Andew's, Chesterton. His parents were James William and Jeanette, who live at 16 Union Lane and later at Fairview, 225 Milton Road. He worked for the University Physiological Laboratory and also found time to enlist at Bury into the Suffolk Yeomanry as trooper No.2421. With either the 2nd or 6th Battalion Suffolk Regiment he went to France in August 1916 as private No.43622. The battalion was soon in the Passchendaele area, known for the terrible conditions due to the mud. Here the shell holes filled with water, later merging into impassable lakes over which the general staff nevertheless expected heavily laden men to advance. (More soldiers were drowned on land in the First World War than Merchant Navy sailors were drowned at sea in the Second!) It was during such an advance that Harold fell or took cover in a mud-filled shell hole and was unable to get out. He was captured and made prisoner on 13th November 1916. The prisoners and indeed the Germans were very short of food and Harold sent letters home asking for food to be sent to him. Of course his parents sent as much as possible, but Harold never received it and died of starvation on 25th July 1917. His grave is in Germany at the Cologne Southern Cemetery, plot 10, row B, grave 7.

A report appears in the Cambridge Daily News on 6th September 1917; a photo and report is in the Cambridge Chronicle on 12th September and the Independent Press on 12th October 1917. See also Cambridge Holy Sepulchre, Chesterton and Chesterton Arbury

MANSFIELD Sidney George
Private 41487, 6th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment who died of wounds on Wednesday, 23rd January 1918. Aged 19. Born Chesterton, enlisted and resident Cambridge. Son of Charles and Emily Mansfield, of 31, George St., Chesterton, Cambridge.

Buried in BAILLEUL COMMUNAL CEMETERY EXTENSION, Nord, France. Plot III. Row E. Grave I. Listed for St. Luke's as grave reference E5.54.

Born in 1899, Sidney was the son of Charles and Emily, both members of the Chesterton Chapel. They lived at 31 George Street, Chesterton. After enlisting at Cambridge, Sidney was private No.41487 in the 6th Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment. The Regiment had been in France and Flanders since the early part of the war, so Sidney would have been sent to bring the Battalion up to strength. We have no record of when he went to France, although there is some thought that he gave a false age on enlistment. At the end of 1917 the Bedfordshires were back in the Ypres area and we can only assume that it was during this period that Stanley was wounded. His wounds were treated at the main clearing hospital and Corps. H.Q. at Bailleul which is on the French/Belgian border. He died of wounds on 23rd January 1918, aged 19. Sidney's grave is the Bailleul Communal Cemetery ext., plot 3, row E, grave 1. The cemetery contains 3411 Commonwealth, German and Chinese labour corps. graves.

A report of Sidney's death as a result of wounds appears in the official list of casualties in the Cambridge Daily News of Saturday 23rd February 1918.
