Roll of Honour
Mr & Mrs C M Inman, Church Lane,
Knaresborough, have received information of their son, Sergeant C
G Inman (West Yorks), being missing for three weeks past. The
news has come through that he was in a trench mined by the Germans,
and another sergeant in the West Yorks, in response to inquiries,
furnishes the following details : With regard to Sergeant C Inman,
we have no official news of his death , as only one of his section
was found dead in the advanced post where they were located, and, I
believe, an overcoat of Sergeant Inman's was there also; so we think
the remainder may have been taken prisoner of war.
Sergeant Inman, prior to his promotion a few
weeks ago, had been officer's servant to the late Major Dale, who
was killed in action some two or three days after the occurrence
above mentioned. As orderly, Sergeant Inman was much esteemed
by his superior, with whom he had been from the commencement of the
war, both going out to the front in January. Further information is
being anxiously awaited. Before joining the forces Sergeant Inman
was for some years in the employ of the NE Railway Company at
Arthington and Kippax.
