Private 17/452, 17th West Yorkshire Regiment, The Leeds Bantams

There is no service record for Herbert, just a medal card, and with so little information no trace on the census records.  All we can say is that he was an early volunteer for the Bantams, and was therefore less than 5ft 3ins in height.  He was discharged to Class Z on 4th April 1919, and awarded the Victory Medal and the British War Medal.
