Anthony Herbert Strutt

16th (Chatsworth Rifles) Battalion Sherwood Foresters (Notts and Derby Regiment)

Died of wounds at Vermoorzeele Belgium on Saturday 27th April 1918 aged 22.

Extract from the Battalion History
On the 27th April Ridge Wood and Voormezeele were part of the frontline and we fought what amounted to a rearguard action all day. This was our final day in the trenches as we were to be relieved that night. It is therefore with regret to record the last casualty among our original officers. During the relief while leading the remnants of us out of the firing line Lieutenant A H Strutt was mortally wounded.

When the war broke out, he trained with the Inns of Court Officer Training Corp before joining the Sherwood's. He went through the Battle of the Somme in 1916 before being invalided home with trench fever late in 1916 and returned to France in September 1917.

Burial Place

Anthony is buried in the Brandhoek New Military Cemetery No 3 Belgium.
