Leslie Barlow attended King Edward's School from 1906 to 1914 and was a member of the New Road Methodist church. He trained as a pilot in the Royal Flying Corps and served in the newly formed Royal Air Force. He was involved in the crucial stage of the 1918 campaign when the Allies went over to the attack after the long retreats of March and April. Aircraft were closely involved in both spotting targets and attacking the enemy on the ground. His aircraft was brought down near Amiens during one of these daring and vulnerable missions and he was killed. Second Lieutenant Leslie Barlow was 20 years of age and is buried in Villers-Bretonneux Military Cemetery (II AA 4) and commemorated on the Stourbridge, Stourbridge Methodist church and King Edward VI College Memorials
