Prince of Wales's Own (West Yorkshire Regiment), 21st (Service) Battalion (Wool Textile Pioneers)

Formerly 28/602, Northumberland Fusiliers.
Killed in action in France in the Arras sector.
Born at Berwick-upon-Tweed, the son of Edward & Maria McLaughlin of 'Shining Pool', Market Place, Wooler. (N.B. It's highly likely that Wooler will have been recorded as Berwick-upon-Tweed in Army records)
