Pte. Jesse Norman is remembered on the recently restored Muston War Memorial.
He served nearly 3 years in France and was killed in action on the 4th November 1918.
He has no known grave.
He is also commemorated on the Vis-en-Artois Memorial south-east of Arras in France.
‘This Memorial bears the names of over 9,000 men who fell in the period from 8 August 1918 to the date of the Armistice in the Advance to Victory in Picardy and Artois, between the Somme and Loos, and who have no known grave. They belonged to the forces of Great Britain and Ireland and South Africa; the Canadian, Australian and New Zealand forces being commemorated on other memorials to the missing.’ (CWGC)
Mrs B. Worley has kindly allowed us to scan copies of family photographs showing her grandfather and family.
A complete set of Service Records exist for Pte. Norman. He was severely injured in May 1918 and had recently return to active duty prior to being killed in action just one week before the Armistice on the 11th November, 1918. These records will allow us to research in more detail his war service and his loss in action.
