Donald Cooper lived with his parents at 'Amadora', Victoria Street, Stourbridge, and attended Stourbridge Grammar School from 1911 to 1913. He was also a member of the New Road United Methodists. Some time, probably in 1917, he joined the 1/14th London Regiment, the London Scottish, which was in the 56th Division. He had been through the recent battle of Cambrai and had written home to say that he was feeling “A1”. He was, however, wounded very seriously on the 3rd March 1918 and died next day. He had been on sentry duty in the front line when a shell landed in the fire bay near him exploding a box of ammunition. At the Casualty Clearing Station one foot was amputated and a blood transfusion given from another man, but to no avail. Private Donald Cooper was 19 years of age and is buried in Maroeil Cemetery (IV G 11). and commemorated on the Stourbridge, Methodist church and King Edward VI College Memorials.
