James Clarke was the son of Mary Clarke of 29, Lower Morris St., Wigan.

James served in the 10th Battalion of the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment and landed with them in Boulogne on 31st July 1915.

It is not possible to determine the cause of James Clarkes’ death, at the time the Battalion were not in the trenches, but billeted at Humbercamps.

On his medal index card it does state ‘Killed in Action’; whether he was attached to another unit at the time of his death will likely remain a mystery as no other service papers remain.

Rank: Private
Service No: 17462
Date of Death: 28/10/1915
Age: 29
Regiment/Service: The Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, 10th Bn.
