Pte Archibald George Dimmock

Pte Archibald George Dimmock, 43069, 2nd Battalion Northants Regiment, died on February 16th, 1919, in the 55th General Hospital, Boulogne, suffering from broncho-pneumonia. He was aged 27 and had one wound stripe.

A son of Annie Dimmock, of 32 Albert Road, Luton, Archibald had attested under the Derby scheme while working on munitions at Chaul End. Early in 1916 he joined the Bedfords, with whom he went through the Battle of the Somme.

Later he was invalided home with bronchitis, and was in hospital in Wigan for some time. In September 1917 he returned to France with the 2nd Battalion Northants Regiment.

In the autumn of 1918 he came home on leave, and was again ill with bronchitis. He returned overseas at the end of September, and early in 1919, while stationed in Belgium, he was again taken ill. He was transferred to the 55th General Hospital at Boulogne in France, where he became dangerously ill with broncho-pneumonia.

His brother, Sgt Fred Dimmock, had been on active service since 1914, was at the time with the Bedfords in the Army of Occupation, and had re-engaged for a further year.
