Roll of Honour

Second Lieutenant Percy Ingram Marston, who is officially reported to have died of wounds on September 20th, at the age of 23 years, is the only son of Mrs Marston, of 19 Iddesleigh Terrace, Ripon, and of the late Mr C B Marston, of Kings Cross, Halifax. He was educated at Crossley Porter School, Halifax, and the Ripon Grammar School, and on leaving school entered the Knaresborough branch of the national and Provincial Bank. In August, 1915, he joined the Public Schools Battalion, and during the summer of 1916 went through considerable active service with the Royal Fusiliers in France, and was invalided home with trench fever in September of the same year. Subsequently he was accepted for a commission, and was gazetted to the Durham Light Infantry at the end of July, leaving to join his battalion on August 13th last. The news of his death has been received with widespread regret in Ripon, where he was well-known, and very popular amongst a large circle of friends.
