Pte Ebenezer Logan

 

Pte Ebenezer Logan, 7360, 7th Battalion Bedfordshire Regiment, was killed in action at Ovillers-la-Boisselle on the Somme on January 24th, 1917. He was aged 20.

Born in Luton, he had lived at 8 Windsor Street with his widowed mother, Hannah, older brother Arthur William and sister Ada. Another brother, Fred, was married and serving with the R.A.M.C. in Egypt.

Only a roll of honour announcement appeared in the Luton News at the time, but in August 1916 there was a report of Pte Logan having been wounded in both legs and was convalescing after being a patient at the Queen Victoria Hospital in Bristol. That report said Ebenezer was a former employee of the Luton Bleaching and Dyeing Company in Chapel Street, Luton. The attached picture accompanied the report of his wounding.
