The Luton News , 26th September 1918

L-Cpl Hubert Edley Carrington, 60126, 26th Battalion Royal Fusiliers, was killed in action on September 20th, 1917. But it was a year before the War Office confirmed his death on the Menin Road, near Ypres, to widow Ethel at 98 Cambridge Street, Luton.

Hubert had been a bandsman in the 5th Beds Volunteers. He was in camp with the regiment when war broke out, and he was mobilised with the Territorial Force (no. 40412).

Born in 1884, he was the third son of tailor Alfred Carrington (died 1915) and his wife Ann Hunter Carrington, of 44 Harcourt Street, Luton. Hubert had been employed as a boiler maker's driller by Messrs Balmforth & Co before he joined up.
