JOHN HENRY HUTCHINGS

Born in Sydenham Dameral in Devon, John was the husband of Blanche Hutchings (née Jane) of South Battens. The Jane family had lived at Trenhorne and Penhole in North Hill. John and Blanche lived at Nether Trelabe in Linkinhorne parish before moving to Battens and then to Bathpool.

He signed up for the Royal Veterinary Corps in 1916 before being transferred or posted to the Yorkshire Regiment. John is buried at Mory Abbey Cemetery near Arras in France having been killed by shellfire whilst guarding a trench in the Bullecourt sector, south east of Arras.

He is remembered on the Launceston War Memorial as “I Hutchings” and also on the North Petherwin War Memorial.
