Pte Alfred George Titmuss


Pte Alfred George Titmuss, 32174, 6th Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment, was presumed killed in action during the second Battle of Arras in France on April 23rd, 1917. He was aged 21.

A letter from Lieut Dudley to parents George and Sarah Kate Titmuss, of 40 Milton Road, Luton, said their son was reported as missing and he was afraid he must now be either dead or a prisoner of war. Many inquiries had been made, but none of his comrades could say what happened to him.

He was last seen when the boys made a gallant attack on the German line during the second Battle of Arras.

Pte Titmuss enlisted in the Bedfordshire Regiment at the outbreak of war. Together with his brother he had participated in the Gallipoli campaign and was wounded in the thigh. He returned to England for treatment before being drafted out to France in November 1916.
