A bit of poetic license i think but he said he was the best Town player he had ever seen.

He was I believe one of the originals and went to France in Nov 1915 with his battalion. He was wounded at some point and later discharged in Feb 1917 as unfit for army service. Any background information on him would be great, particularly when and how he was wounded. Born in West Ham, London he was a professional footballer prior to enlisting, playering for Leyton, WBA, Blackpool and Bristol City among others, I wonder what became of him after his medical discharge.
