Correctly named 1866 Pte WF Trevitt S Staff R
William Frederick Trevitt was born to William and Agnes in Wolverhampton in 1897.
We find the family in 1911 living at 66 Imerman Street, Wolverhampton and William is working as an electrical engineer/machinist.
He served with the 6th Battalion and went overseas to France with them in March 1915. He is later re-numbered 240156.
A wound report dated 30th July 1916 is found and further research tells us William was shot in the finger whilst serving with D Company 6th Bn on the 2nd of July 1916. The battalion were serving with the 5th Bn South Staffs at that time and were in trenches 1 mile east of Souastre.
We know that after his discharge he re-enlisted into the Grenadier Guards with the service number 260774 and is still with them in the Guards Depot in Caterham, Surrey in 1921.
He married Violet Salter in 1922.
William died in 1959.
The medals are mounted for wear on original ribbons with clasp. Evidently a proud soldier who polished his medals as can be seen.
