Commemorating the Fallen of WW1

Today we remember …

8th November 1918

Thomas Upton, A Social 1908. Captain, 1st Bn, Yorkshire LI. Killed in action in an unknown engagement

He took a commission soon after the outbreak of the War in 1914.  He was seriously wounded shortly after, but returned to the Western Front and served throughout the rest of the War.

He is buried in Semousies Churchyard in northern France.  The churchyard contains the graves of two soldiers of the Yorkshires and Captain Upton: all died on 8th November 1918, presumably all wounded in the same unknown engagement which happened around 5th November.

Aged 22
