Roll of Honour 1916

Loughborough Monitor - 19th October 1916

Pte Hollingsworth, of the Leicestershire Regiment, has been killed in action. He was 28 years old and a Quorn man, who worked with his father in the market gardening and nurseryman's business. He joined the Colours eight months ago.

Pte Benskin, of the Leicestershire Regiment, has been killed in action. He was 19 years of age, and his parents live in Barrow Road, Quorn. When in civil life he worked at the Quorn Mills of Messrs M T Wright and Sons.

Pte J P Flanders, of the Leicesters, according to private letters, has been killed in action. He was a son of Mr R Flanders, of Quorn, who previously had been in gentleman's service with the late Colonel the Hon Montagu Curzon and then with Mrs Arthur King, of Garatshay. Mr and Mrs Flanders had three sons in the Army, and have now lost two, for one son was drowned in May in the Tigris while out with the Mesopotamian expedition. Another son is in the mercantile service.

A number of Quorn men are reported wounded. Pte S Blackshaw, of the Durham Light Infantry, is dangerously wounded and in hospital. The family have already lost in the war, for a brother was killed in the Gallipoli Peninsula. Pte S North (now in an English hospital), Sergt. Redhead, and Pte L Brewin all of the Leicesters, are in hospital suffering from wounds.
