ISLE OF WIGHT MERCURY

Friday, November 15, 1918 Page 1

We publish a list of names of those men of Lowtherville who have made the great sacrifice in the war. The number is thirty and it is feared this may not be an absolutely complete list. The patriotism of this little area has been an inspiring example during the war. At the schoolroom there is a list of nearly three hundred men of the district and boys of the school who have enlisted in the various services. It has been kept up to date and revised by Mrs. Baker, wife of Mr. Alderman Baker. The word "wounded" appears opposite a large number of names and there are several "mentions". Those who have been killed in action, died of wounds or at sea, are as follows,

Hector Beavis (drowned)
Edward Colenutt
Percy Channing
William Drudge
Theodore Drudge
Charles Glaire
George Glaire
Percy Gatrell
William Godsell
Herbert Harvey (missing at Gallipoli)
Archibald G. Harber (died of sickness)
Charles Ridges
George Matthews
Frederick Milligan
George Pilcher [*]
Phillip Russell
Frederick W. Russell
James Salter
Albert V. Salter (died of wounds)
Frederick Symmans
Frank Symmans
Robert G. Tharle
George Tharle (five times wounded)
James Taylor
William Smith
Edward Bush
Percy Davis
Harry E. Dore
Thomas Rayner
Edgar Westmore


[*] George Pilcher is not otherwise commemorated on any Island War Memorials.
