Pte Richard John Frederick Comporo, G/14521, 2nd Battalion Royal Sussex Regiment, was killed in action in Flanders on November 23rd, 1917. He was aged 19.

He had joined up on the declaration of war and was soon drafted out to France. Owing to a regulation that men could not serve at the Front until 19, he returned home before going back to France five months before his death.

Pte Comporo is included under that name on the Luton Roll of Honour, although his parents' name was Pearman. His home address was 7 Windsor Street, Luton.
