In memory of Private Walter Edward Wallis, Great Waltham, Essex. Died 05/10/1917 age 23. Worcestershire Regiment 1st/7th Bn. Service No.41385. Commemorated at Tyne Cot Memorial, Belgium, Panel 75 to 77. Born October 1894. One of nine children. Son of David Wallis and Mary Ann Wallis (née Buck), of The Rose and Crown, Great Waltham, Chelmsford, Essex. He worked as a farm labourer before enlisting. A letter from the Imperial War Graves Commission in 1920 indicates that he was buried at a point northeast of St Julien, Belgium, but it would appear his grave was lost in subsequent fighting or his remains were not identified. Born: Great Waltham, Essex. Enlisted: Chelmsford, Essex. Resided (1911 census): The Rose and Crown Inn, Great Waltham.
