De Astonian Magazine Obituary of Christmas 1917
“Second-Lieut. H. Raymond Rawlinson, whose death we much regret to report, entered De Aston in January 1906, remaining at School five years, when he left to take up a position in a bank.

Lieut Rawlinson was on the staff at Lloyd’s Bank in Birmingham when war broke out, and on September 21st, 1914, he joined the 7th Worcesters. He underwent training at Kidderminster, Maldon and Brentwood. In October, 1915, he was promoted to the rank of sergeant, and went to Bisley for a machine-gun course.

From there he went to Sidworth in the M.G.C. attached to the 7th Worcesters, and was drafted to France in March, 1916, returning to England the following November to take up a commission, He underwent the necessary training at Bisley and on April 26th this year was gazetted and sent to Clipstone, where lie remained until August and when he returned to active service and was killed in action on. 26th September.

From Lieut. Rawlinson’s orderly, Mrs. Rawlinson received the following letter, dated 27th September “Dear Mrs. Rawlinson - Ere this arrives you will no doubt have received news of your dear son’s death. Being his servant I was much in contact with him. I feel it my duty to let you know he will be greatly missed by all those that knew him. He died a soldier’s death right in the battle front. It must be some satisfaction to you to know that he died doing his duty nobly, and that death was almost instantaneous. If it is not asking too much, I would like a small photograph of him.”

Son of Arthur John and Charlotte Wheatley Tillett, of "The Chestnuts," Market Rasen, Lincs. Buried in Prospect Hill Cemetery, Gouy, Aisne, France. Plot V. Row B. Grave 7.

School Admissions Book:
“Tillett, John Edward, born 4th December 1895, admitted September 21st 1905, son of A.J.Tillett, Brewery Manager of Market Rasen. Left Easter 1912. Killed in Action.”

Page 196 De Astonian Magazine
“Another gallant De Astonian has made the supreme sacrifice, Lieut John Edward Tillet, of the Lincolnshire Regiment (special reserve), the only son of Mr Arthur J. and Mrs Tillett,with whom much sympathy is felt in their great loss.

Lieut. Tillett was, in truth, a soldier, and was beloved by those who had the good fortune to serve under him. The true qualities of an officer are very speedily seen by the men serving under him, and appreciated accordingly, with the result that the men give of their best and try to to emulate their officer in those attributes which make for military efficiency. Such an officer was Lieut. J.E.Tillett, who was killed in action on 8th October last, and whose death is deplored by a large circle of friends.

Lieut. Tillett was educated at De Aston Grammar School, and in 1912 was articled to Mr. A.A. Padley, solicitor. On the outbreak of the war he joined a voluntary corps of young men who commenced their training at the Old Victoria Foundry, all the members of which joined H.M. Forces. The deceased was attached for training to a Territorial Regiment on his 19th birthday, 1914, and was eventually gazetted in April 1915 to the Lincolnshire Regiment (Special Reserve of Officers) as 2nd Lieutenant.

In the same year he was attached to one of the Line Battalions of the Regiment in which he served 1915-1917 and this year on various parts of the Western Front. In the early part of 1916 he was machine gun officer to his Battalion, and was promoted Lieutenant in January 1917.

Lieut. Tillett was invalided home after the rigors of the 1916-17 winter, and during his period of light duty commanded a Company of a Battalion of the Suffolk Regiment, after which he returned to France to rejoin his old Battalion.

He was wounded near Rheims on the 29th May last, on the same morning that his old schoolfellow, Lieut. J. Gilbert Pippett, M.M., who was with him at the time, was killed. After a period of convalescence Lieut. Tillett rejoined his Regiment again and unfortunately met his death as stated previously.”
