Meine Geschichte

Rating Surveyor Charles Naylor served with the 1/8th Battalion of the King’s (Liverpool) Regiment, part of the 164th Brigade, of the 55th Division. He was the son of James Louis and Sarah Agnes Naylor of Walton-le-Dale, Preston, Lancashire.

On the 31st of July 1917 his Division attacked the German positions east of the hamlet of Wieltje. The 165th and 166th Brigades were to capture and consolidate the first two German lines. Five hours later the 164th Brigade passed through the 165th and 166th Brigades and captured and consolidate the German’s third line (Gheluvelt-Langemarck Line), establishing posts between Toronto and Aviatik Farm.

The 1/8th King’s were to “mop up” all German defences on the left. As soon as the objectives were gained the 1/8th were to move into support and were to dig in on the Keir Farm-Schüler Farm line.

Corporal Rothwell marked in his report that “When we got to our objective Sergeant Naylor was wounded, when a shell bursted near him.

The 24-year-old died of his wounds near Schüler Farm. Charles has no known grave and he is now remembered on the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial Bay 6 Stone X.
