Thurloe, George

BORN LIVERPOOL 1896. ENLISTED IN HULL. EX RECKITT’S WORKER. HE WAS A SINGLE MAN. EX 30745 EAST RIDING YEOMANRY. NO CENSUS MATCH.
Hull Pals Memorial Post. PRIVATE GEORGE THURLOE 52610. Born in Liverpool, though he enlisted at Hull City Hall as 30745 in the East Riding Yeomanry before transferring to the 11th Battalion East Yorkshire Regiment. Perhaps his family were seafarers as he appears on no records I can uncover barring the papers declaring his money was sent to his mother, Arelina. Liverpool and Hull were both major ports so it is at least a possibility. The only other details I can confirm are that George was killed in action at La Becque on 28th June 1918 as the Pals sought to drive the Germans back over ground they’d taken during the Spring Offensive of March and April, when the Allied lines were broken and all looked lost. George Thurloe is buried in Aval Wood Military Cemetery.
