Notes

Wife Helena Davis nee Sage

Son - George Frederick Davis born 7th March 1916

Mrs Davis was awarded a widow's pension of 20/5 a week from 24 March 1919.

Noah Davis 29 a fish and fruit salesman appealed for exemption on the grounds that serious hardship would ensue if he was called up. He had a newspaper round and an allotment; he grew vegetables for sale. No one else was in the business and his wife would not be able to take over the rounds. The military member advised that a short exemption was in order. The board decided that as he was a one-man business then he should be allowed a total exemption unless a national emergency necessitated his call up.

Wilts Times 8 July 1916

In ever loving memory of our dear son Noah Davis (second son of Noah and Mary Ann Davis, 18 Timber Street, Chippenham) of the Duke of Wellington’s, West Riding Regiment who died in Italy whilst serving his King and Country on September 1st 1918.

Ever remembered by his loving Mother, Father, Brothers and Sisters.

When we last saw his smiling face
He looked so strong and brave.
We little thought how soon he’d be
Laid in a soldier’s grave.

We pictured his home returning,
We longed to clasp his hand,
But God has postponed the meeting
Till we meet in a better place.

Wilts Times 6 September 1919
