Extract from 'Bond of Sacrifice: Officers Died in the Great War 1914-1916', Volume 1, page 446-447:

2nd LIEUTENANT RUSSELL WILLIS, SPECIAL RESERVE, YORK AND LANCASTER REGIMENT, attd. 1st BATTN. LINCOLNSHIRE REGIMENT, was born at Denton, near Manchester, on the 9th November, 1894, the son of William Willis, Head Master of Russell Scott Memorial Schools, Denton, Lancashire.

He was awarded a scholarship from Russell Scott School by the Lancashire County Council. He attended the Manchester Municipal Secondary School; gained the £180 Scholarship awarded by the Manchester Education Committee, tenable at Manchester University, and finally obtained the degree of B.Sc. (Tech.) 1st Class Honours at Manchester University in July, 1914, the first prize in Chemistry, and was awarded a Research Scholarship. He also gained the Chess Championship at the Municipal Secondary School, Manchester. At the University he was a Cadet in the O.T.C., and although his academic record and attainments seemed rather to point to a scientific or scholastic career, he preferred to enter the Army, and received his commission in the Special Reserve, York and Lancaster Regiment, in March, 1914, after passing the qualifying examinations, and being presented with a Sword of Honour by the University. Having been attached to the 1st Battalion Lincolnshire Regiment for active service he was killed in action on the 25th October, 1914, three and a half miles north-east of Neuve Chapelle, after recapturing a trench and two guns from Germans who had taken them from our troops. A Corporal of the battalion gave the following account of the young officer's death : " Lieutenant Willis had not long joined us when we were engaged in action in a small village some three and a half miles from Neuve Chapelle (in a northeasterly direction, I think), but the name of the village I cannot remember. . . . On the morning of the 25th October Nos. 16 and 13 (platoons) retired for a short spell in the reserve trenches some four hundred yards away behind the firing line. Lieutenant Willis was in charge of 16 Platoon, and about noon an order came from headquarters (regimental) that a platoon was required on the right. . . . No. 13 was sent, and almost immediately No. 16 had to go also. We had some very dangerous ground to cover before we could get in a position to retake the trenches or guns, and a house occupied by some thirty snipers had to be taken first, which was soon dealt with; then a small wood was the next place of attack, and we were not long in driving the Germans out of this. . . After a few minutes we were led by Lieutenant Willis in the charge for the trench and guns, which we managed to take, and also hold, but I am sorry to say that Lieutenant Willis, on the very edge of the trench, was hit when half turning to encourage the men on, and he fell into the trench. I soon saw he was badly hit, and sat him in a corner, but there was nothing I could do for him. His last words were, Have we retaken the guns, Corporal ? ' I then left him for a few moments, . . . and when I returned Lieutenant Willis had passed away quite peacefully. . . . He was buried by the Royal Irish Rifles."

LEEDS MAN APPOINTED TOWN CLERK OF BARROW.

The appointment of a Town Clerk for the borough of Barrow came up before the Town Council yesterday, for discussion. Out of selected. applicants from Leeds, BoIton, Blackburn, and Barrow, the Finance Committee recommended that Mr. L. Hewlett, senior assistant Town Clwerk's office, Leeds, be appointed.

Councillor Charles proposed an amendment that Mr. Percy Wolf, of Barrow, be appointed and argued that Mr. Wolf was used to the work, and that during his connection with their Corporation he had had some important work through his hands in connection with the Duddon water scheme.

The amendment, however, was lost by 21 votes to 5, Councillor Charles afterwards intimating that Mr. Hewlett, who was finally chosen, would have his full support.

The salary is £600 a year, all to be paid into the borough accounts.

He was put to the test the day before yesterday, when one of the trenches his company was holding was raided after bombardment by the enemy. The Brigadier-General expressed great satisfaction at the way in which he handled the situation ; he kept his head under very trying circumstances, and by his cheerfulness and energy restored the confidence of his company. We all feel that we have lost a very gallant young officer and a good friend," and his Commanding Officer, Capt. R. V. Williams : "I can say from the bottom of my heart that I never had a more keen, thorough, capable, fearless fellow-officer with me, a man I could thoroughly rely on in all times of stress, trouble and lighting.
