This was on the 24th October; that same night he was buried behind the lines by the Commanding Officer or the Battalion. Chaplain, George was able to attend the short funeral.

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.
