Remembering Harlow’s fallen of World War One

History / Tue 27th Jan 2015 at 01:16pm

BETWEEN 1914 and 1918, 126 Harlow men left their homes and their families and never came back.

Between January 2015 and November 2018, YourHarlow will be publishing a news item, once a month, paying tribute to each soldier that fell.

But before we do, and apologies for the oversight, but could we pay our respects to the two soldiers who died in October 2014.

October 15th, 1914: Private Reginald John Bradley

Churchgate Street resident, Pte Bradley enlisted in the Royal Marines Light Infantry.
He was aboard HMS Hawke when it was sunk by a German U-boat off the coast of Scotland. He died along with 454 other men.

His name is on the Chatham Naval Memorial.

October 30th, 1914: Private Henry (William) Wheatley

Henry was killed in action on Oct 30th aged 29 and is buried in Arras Road Cemetery, Roclincourt, France.

Henry lived in Spring Street in Burnt Mill and was a marine engineer. He is listed on the Netteswell and Burnt Mill roll of honour.

We will publish details of the fallen from January 1915 on Jan 31st.
