Sergeant Tom Langley

 
 

Claro Times - 22nd October 1915

News of the death of Sergeant T Langley, 12th West Yorkshires, was received by his wife at Beech Street, Starbeck, last weekend. Sergeant Langley was a native of Boroughbridge, and was connected with the Volunteers for many years. He went through the campaign of 1899-1902 in South Africa, and on his return entered the service of North-Eastern Railway. When war broke out he left his employment as a freight shunter at Starbeck, and joined the West Yorkshires, being given the rank of Sergeant, with which he retired for the old Volunteers some years before. For several months he was employed drilling recruits, and then went to the Front, and fell in action on September 26th. He was 36 years of age, and his death is widely regretted.
