Nothing is known about John's life, except that army records published after the War indicate he had been born In Stockport and enlisted in the town. His service number is one issued after the beginning of 1916 and is one that suggests that he trained and, perhaps, originally served with the Regiment's 6th Battalion before being transferred to the 4th. He died, from illness or a non-combat related accident, at an army field hospital.
