Details imported from Luton Absent Voters list and the National Roll of the Great War (Section V).

The National Roll (mostly submitted by families) describes his service as follows: Corporal Bunyan volunteered at the outbreak of war and was soon drafted to France. Whilst in this theatre of war he took part in many notable battles including those of Ypres and the Somme and was three times wounded. In 1919 he proceeded to India where he was still serving in 1920. He holds the 1914 Star, and the General Service and Victory Medals.

His Medal Index Card at the National Archives shows that Stanley began his service with the Hussars and transferred to the MGC where he was promoted to Corporal. He entered France in September 1915 and so holds the 1915 Star.
