2nd Lieut. W TURNEY

Description

2nd Lieut. WILLIAM TURNEY. 8th Battn. South Staffordshire Regiment. Killed 10 July 1916 aged 31. Commemorated Thiepval Memorial 7B.
School: 1893-1899.
Register: DOB 4 March 1884. Admitted: May 1893 aged 9. Son of Frederick Nicholson Turney, 13 Alexandra Street. Leather Dresser. Left 1899.

William was noted as a commercial clerk before joining up. He was formerly an acting sergeant in the Middx Regiment, but was commissioned on 5th April 1915 and went to France in 1916. He is not noted on the War Memorial although an F. Turney is. However, due to a lack of supporting information about E (Fred, his older brother?) it is possible F Turney was included in error. More research is needed.
