Leonard Daw was the son of James and Emily Daw of 29 Dawley Brook, Kingswinford. He attended St Mary’s C of E School, Kingswinford, and was a gas works labourer. In 1911 he enlisted in the Worcesters and served in the 1st Battalion in Egypt. On the outbreak of war they returned to Brotain and joined the 8th Division. They moved to the Western Front and took over the line at Neuve Chapelle. In November 1914 it was an active front, although the great Autumn campaigns had just finished. An enemy bombardment on the 15th November killed seven men from the Regiment. Among them was Private Leonard Dawes who had spent just ten days in the front line. He is commemorated on the Le Touret and Kingswinford Memorials.
