Extract from the Daily Mail, Thursday 27 February 2014:

"Vann was born in High Street South, in Rushden in 1887, and played football for Northampton Town before training for the priesthood.

He then went on to become chaplain of Wellingborough School.

However, at the outbreak of war in August 1914, Vann chose instead to enlist as a regular soldier rather than face a delay to join the chaplaincy and was dispatched to France.

Vann rose through the ranks in the 1/8 Sherwood Foresters, receiving the Military Cross as well as the Croix de Guerre.

The citation in the London Gazette adds that he 'rushed a field gun single handed and knocked out three of the detachment.'

Four days later he was killed by a German sniper while preparing to lead another attack."
