Mon histoire

Charles Henry Measey, a former farmer labourer, was born on October 13, 1882 in Oakley, Buckinghamshire, England. He was the son of Joseph Measey and Martha Elizabeth Gladdy. Three (Thomas, George and Frank) of his six brothers also died during the war. He lived in Clydach, Swansea, Glamorgan, Wales. He enlisted at Swansea, Wales in 1914. Charles Henry served as a Private in the 146th Machine Gun Company, part of 146th (West Riding) Brigade, from the 49th (West Riding) Division.

On November 11, the 146th Brigade relieved the 6th Australian Brigade in the front line on Broodseinde Ridge. During the relief, there was enemy shelling in the area.

Charles Henry Measey, aged 35, was killed in action on November 11, 1917. Private Measey was initially buried where he fell, south of Retaliation Farm (28.D.28.d.00.00). After the war, his remains were exhumed and reinterred in the Aeroplane Cemetery, Plot III, Row B, Grave 47.
