Harry Masters: 10th March 1918

He enlisted at Clapham Junction with the London Regiment 2nd/23rd Battalion and became Private 701009.  He is buried in the Jerusalem War Cemetery.

Henry/Harry was the son of John and Elizabeth Masters of 103 Beechcroft Road.  His mother, Elizabeth, died between 1901 and 1911.  His father had been a Police Constable but by 1901 had become a lamplighter for the gas company. Harry was a coal and coke porter (possibly a job gained through his father at the gas company).

His brothers’ Thomas and Daniel also served and died in the war. Daniel is commemorated on the SMM Memorial, but  Thomas wasn’t. His details can be found here.
