Sgt A W (Bill) Bate joined up in 1914, originally with the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. He was with the regiment until at least September 1916.
A Survivor of the Great War
He next appears as a member of the 1/5 Battn. Lancashire Fusiliers in 1918, where he lists the engagements he was involved in from 21 August through to the Armistice.
Sgt Bate was my paternal grandfather.
