  • Kemball

    Kingston Grammar School's Roll of Honour on which the name of "L B C Kemball" appears

    Private Leonard Benjamin Charles Kemball (42585) of the 4th Battalion of the Prince of Wales (North Staffordshire Regiment) died of his wounds on 28 September 1918 aged just 19 and is buried at the Belgian Battery Corner Cemetery. The Cemetery was largely used for burials from a dressing station in a nearby cottage so perhaps Private Kemball was treated there.

  • Lance Corporal Harry Kidwell (10151) of the third Battalion of the South Lancashire Regiment died on 9 July 1916 aged 20 years. He has no known grave and is commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial.

  • Lamb

    Kingston Grammar School's Roll of Honour on which the name of "D W Lamb" appears

    Lieutenant Dudley William Lamb died on 22 March 1918. He has no known grave and so is commemorated on the Arras Memorial. Given the date of his death, he must have been a casualty of the (initially) successful German offensive launched in Spring 1918.

  • Littleproud

    Wooden memorial board in All Saints’ Church, New Haw, on which William Frank Littleproud was commemorated

    Private William Frank Littleproud (G13446) of the 11th Battalion of The Queen’s (Royal West Surrey Regiment) died of his wounds on 7 October 1916. He is buried at the Etaples Military Cemetery.
