Pte Fred Clark

Pte Fred Clark, 103495, 10th Battalion Sherwood Foresters (Notts & Derby Regiment), died in the 2nd Canadian Hospital in France on August 19th, 1918, as a result of gas shell poisoning while in action. He was aged 38 and married.

Fred had joined the Beds Regiment (No 30811) in July 1916 and went to France the following November. In May 1917 he was wounded by a bullet in the chest, but recovered to go to France again in March 1918, when he was transferred to the Notts & Derby Regiment.

Pte Clark had formerly worked as assistant to the late Mr S. Impey, County Court bailiff at Luton.

Born at Woodside, near Luton, in 1880 to George and Ruth Clark, Fred had married Ethel Plummer at Luton Register Office on May 19th, 1903. They had two sons – Albert William and Harold Fred – within the next two years.

At the time of the 1911 Census, Fred, Ethel and the boys were living with Ethel's parents at 10 Blyth Place, Russell Street, Luton. Fred was by then assistant bailiff.

At the time of Fred's death, Ethel was living in East Dulwich, London.
