Those who gave their lives from Yarm ______________________________________
WATSON, John. Gunner 20106 46th Bde RFA.
The following was taken from the Yorkshire Regiment website
Died of wounds 4 May 1917. He was born at Hutton Rudby and enlisted at Darlington. Bucquoy Road Cem, France – I E 16. [This identification is not certain since no home address is given. The Memorial lists a Gnr John H Watson but there are not John
H’s in Soldiers Died for the Royal Artillery and the Commission have no record of such a name
either. On balance this man appears to be the right one and certainly he is not on either
Darlington’s or Hutton Rudby’s Roll.
