Sgt Arthur Huckle


Sgt Arthur Huckle, 18233, 8th Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment, was killed in action on the Somme on September 15th, 1916.

Born in Clophill in 1882, he married Ellen Richardson in 1901. At the time of the 1911 Census Arthur was a cowman on a farm at Haynes Church End, Beds, and the couple had four children - Emily, aged 8, George, 6, John, 4, and William, 1.

At the time of Arthur's death the family were living at Limbury and there were six children. He was described as a popular man in the Limbury and Biscot district and had been in the Beds Territorials before the war.

In a letter to widow Ellen, Lieut Noel Nixon, of the Bedfordshire Regiment, said that after his platoon commander had been wounded her husband had led his men against the enemy under "an impenetrable wall of bullets until he fell".
