Mon histoire

Walter Bingham was born in August, 1897 in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England. He was the son Geo R. Dallyn (mother). He enlisted in Sheffield. He served in the 1/7th Battalion Duke of Wellington’s (West Riding Regiment), part of the 147th (2nd West Riding) Brigade of the 49th (West Riding) Division.

Before November 25, the 1/7th Battalion Duke of Wellington’s was held in brigade support near Garter Point. One company was attached to the 5th Battalion Duke of Wellington’s. On November 25, the 1/7th battalion left Garter Point to relieve the 2/9th Manchesters. A new headquarters was set up at Anzac and the three remaining companies were positioned in the vicinity of Station Buildings, Albania and Moulin Farm. The front was relatively quiet, but shells came down daily, causing casualties. They remained in these positions until their relief on November 27.

Walter, aged 20, was killed in action on November 25, 1917. Private Bingham was initially buried where he fell, near De Knoet Farm (28.D.28.b.20.30). After the war, his remains were exhumed and reinterred in the Perth China Wall Cemetery, Plot V, Row J, Grave 7.
