Born in 1882 in Glossop, Walter was a labourer aged 34 when he enlisted in August 1916. His address is given as 44 Hague St Glossop and his next of kin as his sister, Ada.

He went overseas to Egypt on the 30th July 1917. His records indicate him serving at the 26th Stationary Hospital at Ismailia in Egypt. He remains with the EEF until his return to the UK in October 1919. He is noted to have served at 69th General Hospital in Deir el Belah, Palestine in late 1917. With its proximity to Gaza, we can assume he was sent there during the Third Battle of Gaza.

He married Gertrude Jenkinson in April 1920.

In 1939, he is seen to be living at 32 Stanyforth St, Glossop. He is living there with his wife Gertrude and son, Ivan.

Walter died in June 1943 and is buried in Glossop Cemetery at High Peak Borough, Derbyshire.

Medals are on modern ribbon.
