Gunner Samuel Clewes
The Royal Field Artillery
Only one Samuel Clewes is listed in the Silver War Badge records and he was 24 when discharged from the Army due to his wounds in 1919. This Samuel was also with the Royal Field Artillery. Research led to a gentleman born in 1894/1895 in the Potteries.
Having been a sagger maker’s assistant, Samuel joined the Royal Field Artillery in December 1915. He suffered serious wounds during the fighting and was admitted to hospital, leading to his discharge from the Army on medical grounds in 1919.
Gunner Clewes was treated at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Netley.
