Pte Samuel Charles Wiseman

Pte Samuel Charles Wiseman, G/28641, 2nd Garrison Battalion Royal Irish Fusiliers, died from pneumonia in the 28th General Hospital in Salonika on February 17th, 1918.

Son of the late Samuel and Elizabeth Wiseman, of Cumberland Street, Luton, he had married Annie Isabella Smith in her native Carlisle, Cumberland, in 1910. Birth records suggest they had three children - Samuel (born 1911), Margaret (1913) and Rose (1916).

Samuel had enlisted in the Border Regiment (9189). In 1911 he was stationed at the Martinique Barracks in Hampshire, while Annie remained in Carlisle.

Samuel is, however, commemorated on the Luton Roll of Honour and War Memorial.
