Birth: Jan. 16, 1915
Death: Jul. 2, 1940

Soldier.
He was Private 4033447 serving in the Welch Regiment (4th Batt.) during the Second World War.
He died aged 25 years.
He was the son of Harry and Martha Florence DARRALL of Prince Street, Madeley, Shropshire, England.
Prior to joining up, he was employed by the Madeley Wood Company. He originally served with the King's Shropshire Light Infantry but later transferred to the Welch Regiment. His final duty with them was as a guard on the ill-fated "Andorra Star".
This one time luxury liner became known as the "Star of Shame" as it carried over one thousand internees from Scotland to Newfoundland. Amongst those on board were Germans and Austrians, but the majority were Italians and included a member of the Forte family and a well respected parish priest, the Very Reverend Gaetano Fracassi.
The "Andorra Star" was torpedoed of Malin Head, Donegal, Ireland in July 1940 by German U-Boat U-47 commanded by Gunter Prien with the loss of 600 lives. A number of other victims were buried on Rathlin Island.
