Soldiers of the Regiment

Warrant Officer Class 2 (Regimental Quartermaster Sergeant) William Clark, 1st/4th Battalion, King's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment

William Clark served with the 1st Volunteer Battalion of the King's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment and continued his service from 1908 on the creation of the 4th (Territorial Force) Battalion.  It would appear that whilst he attended the 1913 Annual Camp as a Sergeant, he had left the Territorial Force before the outbreak of the First World War.  He is shown as having enlisted on 9th September 1914 and received the number 2602. This number was changed to 200540 in 1917.  He went overseas with the rest of the 1st/4th Battalion on 3rd May 1915.  His home address is shown as 106 Harrogate Street, Barrow in Furness.  He was Regimental Quartermaster Sergeant of the 1st/4th Battalion by 1919.
