Arthur William JENNINGS
Pte. A.W. Jennings, (known to his many friends in the Regiment as "Jenner"), joined the Second Battalion on August 29th, 1914 and shortly afterwards was transferred to "A" Company of the First at Lowestoft. Here his cheerfulness and his willingness always to help a 'pal' gained him much deserved popularity and the boys of the old "A" Company will always remember him as a true comrade.
Soon after his arrival in India, he went to Secunderabad as a nursing orderly, and while on duty there, he unfortunately contracted enteric, being sent as a convalescent to Wellington [Barracks].
He eventually rejoined the Battalion at Jullundur, and continued his duties as nursing orderly at the Station hospital, later also at Jutogh Hospital. His quiet patient nature earned him the heartfelt praise and appreciation of all who came under his care.
His loss will be felt throughout the Battalion, and our deepest sympathy goes out to his parents in their sad bereavement.
