Captain Alfred Tucker


Claro Times 13th August 1915

Captain Alfred Tucker, 5th King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, was reported, in a message received in Doncaster, yesterday, to have been killed in action. In a fierce bombardment only a few days ago he was struck by a shell which injured him so severely in the head that he died two hours later. 

In Captain Tucker the Battalion has lost its first Doncaster officer. He was the third son of Mr and Mrs C W H Tucker, 32 Park Avenue, Harrogate, and was 28 years of age. Captain Tucker was a member of the firm of Booth, Wade, Farr, and Lomas-Walker, solicitors, Leeds. He went to reside in Doncaster in 1910, and as an ardent Conservative, he took a prominent interest in public affairs, being appointed hon. Secretary of the Doncaster Division Conservative Association. He worked for the Junior Conservatives and the Primrose League, was secretary of the local branch of the Land Union, and when the Amateur Parliament was in being he was one of the leading men.
