HARRIS

Charles William

1895 1917 - Charles was born in St Albans, in 1895. He was the second son and third child of Harry and Rose Harris. Other children in the family were: Clara, Harry, Lilian, Ellen, Jennie, Jessie, Winnie and Leslie. Harry Harris worked on the railways. Charles was a private in the Bedfordshire Regiment. He died on 25th July 1917 and is buried at Pond Farm cemetery, Belgium.

The Herts Advertiser, of 11th August 1917, graphically described his death:

Pte C W Harris - Another of the brave Bedfordshires gone. Mr H Harris of 39 Walton Street, St Albans, has received information that his second son, Pte C W Harris of the Beds Regiment, has been killed in action. Pte Harris joined the army in August 1914 and went to France in July 1915. At the time of the Big Push, July 1916, he was wounded and, again, in April 1917. Mr Harris has received a very sympathetic letter from the officer in command of the Company his boy was in. This officer writes:- I am afraid you have already learnt that your son, Pte C W Harris of this Company, was killed in action on the morning of July 25th. I have known Pte Harris practically ever since his enlistment, as he was one of our original men, just as I was one of the original officers of ------ Company. Your son was one of the best men we have ever had or ever hope to have, and had been, as you know, with us the whole time. I saw him hit the first time at Contalmaison and was in the same trench about four yards away, when he was killed. We were in the trenches near Menances and suddenly, at 2am, a piece of trench, where most of us were, was heavily shelled. The heavy shell landed on a Lewis gun detachment, killing two men, of whom your son was one, and wounding three or four more. Your son was buried by the falling earth and died before we could get him out, although some men immediately started to try and do so. His death must have been almost instantaneous. We carried him right back behind the old British line, and buried him in a cemetery about four and a half miles east of Bailleul. Before enlistment, Pte Harris was employed by Mr King, grocer, St Peter's Street, St Albans. He was twenty two years of age, and has another brother in the Royal Fusilliers, who is now in France.

Private 12906, 6th Battalion, Bedfordshire Regiment. Killed in action 23rd July 1917. Born, resident and enlisted St Albans. Buried in POND FARM CEMETERY, Heuvelland, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium. Row P. Grave 1. See also St Albans Tabernacle Church and St Albans

HOPKINS

Alfred Thomas

Private 84469, 248th Company, Machine Gun Corps (Infantry). Killed in action 20th September 1917. Aged 31. Enlisted St. Albans. Son of Alfred Hopkins, of 8, Culver Rd., St. Albans; husband of Helen Hopkins, of Sleep's Hyde, St. Albans. Formerly 31157, Northamptonshire Regiment. No known grave. Commemorated on TYNE COT MEMORIAL, Zonnebeke, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium. Panel 154 to 159 and 163A. See also St Albans

This is David Payne's grandfather, he added the following notes (please note that the CWGC refers to 248th Company but David refers to the 242nd Company):

My great grandparents, Alfred and Louise Hopkins, moved from Holles Street in Holborn to St. Albans to pursue employment with Messrs. Dangerfields (later to become the printers “Eversheds”) following in his trade as a store lithographer, settling in Culver Road, St. Albans.

Their eldest son, my grandfather, Alfred Thomas Hopkins, was a soldier (called to the colours in 1917) in the Herts and Bedfordshire Regiment, he volunteered for the “Machine Gun Corps”, aptly nicknamed the “Suicide Battalion” so that the extra training period would enable him to stay in England – alive – to be with his family for the birth of his son Alfred.

The 242 Company of the Machine Gun Corps Company records show that he was shipped out to Belgium in June 1917 and was killed 20th September 1917.

The brief history has been taken from the Company diaries, mentioned in the book “With a Machine Gun To Cambrai”, a history of the Machine Gun Corps.

Ypres, 20th September 1917. 242 Machine Gun Corps Company, part of the 23rd Division. The opening salvo on the 1st day of the 3rd Passchendaele-Ypres offensive. His machine gun section was sited in “Jam Trench”, which I believe was situated on the Menin Road, Ypres, Belgium.

"At zero plus 20 minutes, according to orders received from D.M.E.O. (amending appendix 111), fire was opened and lifted to the various barrage lines, according to the programme laid down".

"Various S.O.S. calls were replied to during the day and early hours of the night following".

"Captain J.R. Bellory, MC., commanding the left group (No. 7) was wounded (shellfire) about 10.00am and proceeded to dressing station, whence he was taken to the 10th C.C.S. 2/Lt. Rudd took over command in his place"

(I have signed condolence letters from both he and Sgt. Major March).

The casualties otherwise were 5 killed, shellfire, (A.T. Hopkins among this number) and 3 wounded, shellfire. My grandfather has no known grave, but his name is commemorated on the wall at Tyne Cot Cemetery.

He left a wife and 3 young children; the family home was given as 124 Hatfield Road, St. Albans. His younger brother, Robert, a Sapper in the Royal Engineers had been in France for 12 months, whilst another, James — having fought in the Battle of the Somme with the Bedfordshire Regiment — was suffering with "nerve shock".
