Sidney Price's story is linked to Luton via finding his name in an Autograph Book that existed in Collingdon Street during WW1.
He draws a beautiful winter scene on one of the earlier pages, and so I simply had to research his story.
Sadly, despite my wanting him to have survived the war, he didn't make it and was killed in action on the 1st July 1916, a day that will live in infamy as the worst day in British military history. The first day of the Battle of the Somme. He is remembered on the Thiepval Memorial.
He also had a second earlier service number from his Territorial days:- 3155
He was the son of Thomas and Hannah Price. Husband of Annie Evelyn Price,15 Clinton Street,Beeston,Notts.
