Pte Percy Edwin Snoxell

Pte Percy Edwin Snoxell, 245142, 2/2nd Battalion London Regiment Royal Fusiliers, was posted wounded and missing on October 26th, 1917, and was later presumed to have been killed on that date.

In a letter to Percy's married sister Elizabeth Bates, platoon officer Lieut H. M. Cook wrote: "Your brother was reported wounded and missing on October 26th. I have made inquiries among those of his comrades who were with him when we made the attack that morning, and they tell me he was hit soon after we went over. His corporal bound up the wound, and everything possible was done to make him comfortable."

Although only 19 years old, Percy Snoxell had enlisted in the Bedfordshire Regiment before the war. He was subsequently transferred to the London Regiment, with whom he went to France in July 1917.
