Royal Engineers, 222nd Field Company
Arras Memorial (Faubourg d'Amiens Cemetery)
Enlisted at Alnwick, Northumberland.
Born in 1889 at Glanton, Northumberland, the son of Andrew (b.1849 at Eglingham) & Annie Dodds (possibly, nÃ©e Wardle; b.1858) of Holly House, Glanton.
In 1901 Dodds was living in Glanton with his father, who was a Joiner, his mother & two younger brothers, Thomas W. (b.1892) & Stanley (b.1899).
Dodds was still single in 1911 & worked in the family Farming & Joinery businesses. Thomas also worked on the farm while Stanley was still at school, but no doubt also helping in the family business.
N.B. The 1891 Census shows Dodds as then living next door to William Kitchen who was killed in action only five days later, on 28 April 1917.
